Through increased soil organic carbon, water retention capacity, pH, soil structure and microbiological activity and decreased presence of fungal pathogens.
By increasing the population and quantity of beneficial fungal communities, and mushrooms which serve as biodiversity magnets.
From mixed thinning and inoculation activities that remove biomass and increase the rate of decay of woody organic material.
From sales of processed wood, mushrooms and mushroom substrate, and expanded business services.
