Notes: Two large clustered FB’s at the base of hardwood, up to 36 cm. across, arising from central stalks that branch into stems with fan shaped caps. Each cap up to 8 cm., ranging in color from pale brown to gray buff, felted surface, wavy margin, white flesh up to 9 mm. thick. Pores are white, angular, 2-3 per mm. Flesh and pores do not bruise/stain. Mild odor and taste.
These FB’s were submerged during 2 nights of heavy rains as evidenced by leaves and twigs throughout the clusters.
I believe the tree to be a type of oak but it is not shown in my Maine Forest Service book “Forest Trees of Maine” so I can’t be positive. The leaf structure is most similar to that of Quercus bicolor. It is possible that this small stand was planted years ago by the landowner.
