Were the Salix shrubby (S. glauca, S. planifolia) or dwarf (S. arctica, S. reticulata)?

I still need to verify the species of Salix, and Arctostaphylos was also present. The collection was made in a moister area that was at a slightly lower elevation than the conifers in the immediate area, although I wouldn’t be surprised if conifer roots extended that far. Whitebark pine was the most common tree, although there were a few spruce in the area.

I’d love a dried basidiocarp if you are willing to send one. Do you know what kind of Salix was nearby? Any spruce? I think I see Arctostaphylos in that first pic as well.
