Alder, maple, quintz, or hazelnut

wouldn’t have to be necessarily close. A 40-foot-tall Red alder, for example, could easily form mycorrhizal fungus 120 feet distant from it, or 3 times the height of the tree.

Yes on the property we have alder, maple, cedar, fir, hazelnut, quint , apple, cherry and a few oak trees. Plus more , I can check what else was in the area. In that corner we have maybe 100 square yards of fir, and only a few cedar. I didn’t spit any cedar very close to the find.

“found in fur and cedar forest” suggests Clavariadelphus ligula, which is 2-10cm tall according to Arora. I think your specimen is more like Clavariadelphus pistillaris, which is 6-20cm tall, but is found under hardwoods.

Are you sure there was no alder nearby?
