Matsutake forests

Noah, I’m curious about those woods where you find almost all the same species as we do i Sweden, in old and sandy pine forests (Pinus sylvestris) with a history of repeated burning. In your pictures I can only see rather young trees. Aren’t old forests necessary, or have there been old trees around?

It is not the same species of pine, but many of these seem to have the same mushrooms, or at least very closely related ones. And of course some odd ones too, depending on where they originated from, I guess.

Many of these mushrooms are considered threatened, because suitable habitats are getting fewer. How would you describe the situation in Massachusetts, are there fires often enough, any conflicts with forestry etc.?
