The trees used are oak from 2E to 30 years of age. They are cut doarn in the autumn, and at intervals of 5in. or 6in. gashes are made with an ate all up aid down the trunk. The trce3 are then hauled to little freiurn ed parts of the forest aad left thire. At the till o' three years mush rooms appear in t'so incisions, and furnish a c:op which lasts the yeal roml, thojo of the autumn being the mo3t valuable.
