Removing a stump with fungus

stump shroom removal

I appreciate all the ideas for alternative stump removal from yesterday's post.

This is a new stump we plan on inoculating with Oyster mushroom spawn we've been nursing with wet cardboard all winter.

The plan will be to drill a bunch of holes, push in the cardboard with mycelium, seal it up with some bees wax and check back in about 10 months to see if we beat any other mushroom variety that may have already introduced itself.
