This was observed growing on a burned and fallen pitch pine trunk in the woods in the Lake Atsion area.
This particular section of the woods behind the ranger station that I used to frequent in the past burned about two months ago. It was not a controlled burn, but either a case of arson or an accidental fire due to dry conditions. The fire singed about 1 sq. mi of mixed woods. Pitch pines are used to fires and will survive, but oaks and other deciduous trees and shrubs took a big hit. Old oaks are not likely to recover from this and will eventually die, but dead oak saplings are sporting plentiful foliage from fresh sprouts growing directly from the roots. The area will eventually heal, though it may take a while. I don’t know how this will affect the mushrooms, so I will come back later in the year to investigate.
