Choice edible when young, grows extremely rapidly, fruit bodies within 27 days during ideal conditions, probably medicinal as well.

always see them on oak. mostly live oak.

Hericium in your area, Richard?

Mostly oaks in my area. Also Bigleaf maple, Red alder, most other hardwoods locally, but sometimes Lodgepole pine as well.
