I encounter them fruiting on recently downed trees frequently . Much better flavor then Laetiporus sulphureus imo.

A couple of examples..

of Laetiporus cincinnatus that are not fruiting from the ground:
Found on top of a log fruiting in the typical rosette pattern.

Found growing from the bottom side of a large downed limb.

They didn’t grow from base of a tree or on ground.

They had white pores for sure. But all the articles I read emphasize Laetiporus cincinnatus grows on ground or on the butt of a tree.
