Our method of harvest is to use only what is pruned and what naturally falls to the ground. Everything is fresh and used immediately and what we do not use right away we freeze to be used at a later date. Poplar buds are best used fresh, live for medicines. If not fresh, then frozen and thawed. Dried buds will always be rotten, black, and crumbly inside from fungal decay. DO NOT EVER USE DRIED BUDS FOR MEDICINES.
