    I know a guy who may be able to point in the right direction, I'll send him an email tomorrow. He's a botanist/dendrologist and probably has a good idea. Not to be an ass, but... Have you tried google?

    I saw a television program about ginseng over the weekend (Appalachian Outlaws.) There is some sort of black market for ginseng. :confused:

    You need to check you local laws before digging ginseng. Here in NC we can only sell ginseng to registered buyers. Digging ginseng is extremely lucrative. If you are caught trespassing to dig ginseng it is felony trespassing. You will go to jail and lose your right to own a gun.
