In Canada as of 2008 it has been illegal to grow ginseng unless it it under shade and fees must be paid to the OGGA OF 100 dollars an acre. Growing in the forest of any type is considered wild ginseng and protected by the endangered species act. Violaters will be classed as felons if root is sold, punishable by one year and 250000 dollars.
This will be coming your way someday! The only way around this is to start your own associations that set out regulations that separate forest growers from wild harvesters. Small fees would need to be paid to the group too keep them afloat and fight any legal issues.

I have been ordered to leave thousands of dollars of root in the ground for poachers. Please take this serious! This will happen as wild becomes more endangered in the USA.
