This depends on the type of mushroom, but many varieties, like Shiitake for example, grow well in hardwood tree species like White Oak, while other mushroom strains, like Oyster, grow better in logs from soft hardwood species  like poplar or maple. Logs should be between 4” and 8” in diameter, and cut from a live tree in its dormant stage.
