Wild Gingseng

Have you seen this plant in your woods??

If you think you have, take particular note of it! You may have a rare and valuable herb growing on your land. It's called ginseng, and it is highly valued by the Asian markets. You could make some extra spending money, but you're not going to get rich off harvesting wild ginseng. Keep in mind though that it is easily wiped out (as in made extinct on a property) by overharvesting. There's a link here and here with more information on harvesting wild ginseng. Plus if you Google it, you'll find your local state regulations (at least I did when I Googled it).
I'm just looking into it and learning about it myself. Have any of you harvested wild ginseng??
