Free calendars and firewood export bans

Posted

We've got a few extra 2012 calendars hanging around, so for the month of February: Free Beautiful Mushrooms of the World 2012 Calendar for all orders over $50! You don't need to enter any special codes, just spend over $50 (shipping not included) and we'll toss one in with your order when it ships! Taylor Lockwood's stunning photography makes for a very slick mushroom calendar. A great gift for anyone, or just something funky to grace your cubical wall!

You may have noticed for some time now that our mushroom logs have been listed as "sold out." This is a little misleading. We always have mushroom logs... or at least almost always have mushroom logs. The problem lately has been that Knox County Tennessee (our home sweet home) is currently under a hardwood firewood export ban as the result of Emerald Ash Borer infestation in East Tennessee. The regulation restricts the movement of firewood of all hardwood (non-coniferous) species. Our white oak logs are harvested fresh, plugged quickly, stored in our protected demonstration garden, and we believe them to be unaffected by the EAB.  Although our logs are not firewood and are not exposed to firewood lots, we still feel it is responsible for us to abide by this movement restriction. Therefore, for the foreseeable future, mushroom logs will not be available for shipping.

We still maintain a stock of mushroom logs at our demonstration garden and showroom in Knoxville. Customers are more than welcome to stop by for local pickup and purchase. We generally keep a selection of logs, and may have them in various sizes, shapes, prices, etc.
