Those of you who took our advice and planted "Wild-Simulated" 10 years ago will be able to enjoy getting "wild" prices for your "wild-simulated" roots starting this year, as we predicted in 1998.
"With soaring prices for good quality American ginseng, the practice of digging out of season and over-harvesting has become an issue. Conservation officials and environmental groups are becoming increasingly concerned about this and may push for a ban on digging 'wild' ginseng. If this should happen, we feel that the 'wild-simulated' ginseng would be called upon to satisfy the market needs. Prices will approach the levels of true 'wild' ginseng. Properly grown 'wild-simulated' roots are indistinguishable from true 'wild' ginseng." From "How To Grow American Ginseng"
Wild Ginseng has been commercially harvested from our northeast hardwood forests since the early 1700's. Out of season wild-crafting and irresponsible digging of wild ginseng plants will undoubtedly force the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to enact a total ban on future wild harvesting. We encourage all ginseng dealers and wildcrafters to develop a replanting program, thus relieving the pressure that has been put on the wild ginseng populations. Catskillginseng.com sponsors "replanting projects" each year to reputable non-profit Organizations, Colleges and Universities.

"The quality ginseng that will supply the market in the future will not come from the large corporate growers, but from a network of small independent and conscientious ginseng farmers." *excerpt from "How to Grow American Ginseng"
Wild Ginseng Plant with Sunburned Leaves
In the spring of 2006 many areas in New York State were invaded by Eastern & Forest Tent Caterpillars. Entire blocks of hardwoods were completely defoliated, thus allowing full sun to reach the forest floor and burn the tender leaves of our native ginseng plants. The hot sun caused many plants to lose their leaves or suffer as the one in the photo above.
