That spot looks like a good place to check on a regular basis for future finds.
I’ll have to check out this tree when I get back up there.
It will be a challenge, the top of the tree is completely gone.
I don’t think it’s Red Oak, but the area is full of various Oak varieties.
I’m curious when I see photos of trees from an area quite different from mine. One reason I thought it might be Cottonwood is That I only find P. ostreatus on Aspen – spring and summer -and in late fall and sometimes winter we find it on wounds in Maple trees.
The tree is a large snag. However, I believe it is a dead Southern Red Oak. The area is full of Red Oak, Sweet Gum and pine.
I rarely see cottonwoods in this area. I could check the next time I go, although it’s a matter of looking at bark. The tree is quite dead. From the photos, the bark is consistent with Southern Red oak.
a cottonwood tree, perhaps Populus deltoids? Thanks.
