Hi! Do you love everything about nature? Us too (just kidding, mosquitos suck). This website exists to help you experience the weirder side of being outside. If you live in the midwest and love foraging plants, bugs, or mushrooms then this is the place for you!

As of 2022 TREEfool’s focus officially became foraging. I’m an amateur mycologist, a lover of fresh wild plants, and crazy enough to put bugs in my mouth.

If you are interested in mycology and not just edible mushrooms you should check out my full mycology guide for eastern South Dakota:

OR! If you just want the TREEfool YouTube channel you can find all my foraging videos and other crazy stuff here: https://www.youtube.com/treefool

So what do you think? I love to meet other foragers that live in the Midwest so send me a message and lets go hiking!

My goal for TREEfool.com is to showcase over 100 wild edible foods specific to South Dakota. Alongside this goal I hope to showcase different environments and ecologies that will help you find the plants you are searching for! I’ve also built a mycology guide for South Dakota to help local amateur mycologists (like myself!) to explore our unique world of fungi.
