With the end of summer, the mushroom season reopens!
Like every year, there are many enthusiasts who venture into the woods in search of mushrooms, often incurring unpleasant episodes, such as illness, loss of orientation, injuries or even death. In order to avoid such accidents, and to carry out the harvesting in harmony with the rules, the State Forestry Corps provides some useful advice for lovers of this activity:
Read up on the itinerary and choose the paths suitable for your physical and psychic abilities
Communicate your movements before embarking on the excursion
Avoid going into the woods alone, the presence of a companion is a guarantee of first aid
Before departure, consult the weather reports and constantly observe the evolution of atmospheric conditions on site. In case of bad weather, do not stop near trees, stones and sharp objects as they could attract lightning
Choose clothing and equipment suitable for the commitment and length of the excursion: trekking shoes, cell phone, lamp and supplies of water and food are recommended
Always avoid the collection of mushrooms of unknown species, if you are not sure of the edibility of your crop, check with the Mycological Inspectorates of the Local Health Authority
For the collection, specific authorizations or badges or permits are required
The daily harvest must not exceed 3 (three) kilos per person
Do not use rakes or hooks that can damage the mycelium
Immediately clean the fungus from residues of branches, leaves and soil to ensure its integrity
Collected mushrooms must be transported in rigid and ventilated containers. The use of plastic bags does not allow the spread of fungal spores in the forest. The lack of ventilation causes the deterioration of the product.
In case of need, contact 1515, the Environmental Emergency number of the State Forestry Corps or contact the CFS Station Commands present in: Monchio, Corniglio, Lagdei, Borgotaro, Berceto, Bardi, Solignano and Pellegrino.
It must be remembered that the collection and marketing of mushrooms is governed by national, regional or local regulations that indicate the species, size, and maximum quantity of mushrooms that can be collected, as well as the calendar of days in which this activity is allowed. These rules generally prohibit the collection of mushrooms in protected areas, such as nature reserves and national parks, and the collection at night, both for the protection of the mushrooms themselves and for safety reasons. Any violation of the rules involves the confiscation of the mushrooms collected and the application, by the competent authorities, of administrative sanctions that vary depending on the offense committed.
The State Forestry Corps recalls that mushroom picking is in any case subject to general objectives of conservation of territorial integrity and the balance of ecosystems. Therefore, those who love nature in general and in particular those who love to go to the woods to look for mushrooms should adopt an adequate and respectful behavior, avoiding upsetting the balance with inappropriate behavior. In fact, it is not uncommon to find mushrooms damaged by kicks or sticks, or thrown away after being collected, following doubts or second thoughts about their edibility.
