but would need to see the rooting structure which would be underground. S. verrucosum often forms in sandy or rocky conditions in arid areas. Birch is one of the favored host trees, at least here in Portland. Photos seem to show sandy/rocky soils, which I would think are pretty dry right now. But would like confirmation of soil type is possible, Tim.
