Log Suppliers

One emerging need for aspiring shiitake mushroom growers is to source sustainably harvested small diameter logs, known as “bolts,” for production. Bolts need to be free of defects and scarring on the bark, and are usually around 4 – 8” in diameter and about 36” long. Suitable species include Oak, Sugar Maple, Beech, and several others. A factsheet outlining the specifics is posted below.

Firewood dealers, loggers, arborists, farmers, and landowners are encouraged to read this document outlining the details of buying and selling bolts for shiitake production, and submit a listing to our online directory below if interested in offering bolts for sale to others.

The economics of selling bolts can be very profitable, as the going price for delivered bolts equals around $2 – $3 per bolt. Extra care and attention must be paid to ensure the quality of the logs is maintained during harvest and transport.

Bolts should be harvested as part of sustainable forestry practices. The fact sheet outlines resources and considerations to ensure management supports the long-term health of New York’s forested lands.
