Chaga is not an edible mushroom but is by many concidered to have very interesting medicinal properties. The dried up and ground conks are used to prepare tea and tinctures for natural remedies. Chaga can grow on a number of trees but is only considered to have a medicinal value when harvested from living birch trees.
Use the mycelium dowels to inoculate living birch trees. Note that the right of public access (allemansrätten) does not allow for inoculation on properties other than your own or where you have been granted permission by the land owner. Inoculation of living trees will damage the tree and can kill it making it a hazard for bystanders, buildings etc. if it should fall. Inoculation in living trees is done at your own risk.
Recommended type of wood: Live birch with a diameter of at least 15 cm. 100 mycelium plugs are enough for grafting four birches.
Best time for grafting: May-October. Time from grafting to harvest approx. 6 years, may vary. Cultivation advice see attached file.
