Collection location: Forest Hill, Maryland, USA [Click for map]
I believe it was a dead oak, the treetop was broken off. It had been raining off and on for days, the temperature was in the upper 60’s on Christmas Day, when it was found. Very unusual weather for MD in December.

When we have warm spells late in the year in Pa. oyster mushrooms can be found growing on Maple tree wounds, bur I believe they can be located on other deciduous woods. Your photos look like the trees are Black Oak or a large Locust tree, but the photos don’t show enough to properly identify the Genus. No big deal; I just like to know the various trees on which Pleurotus ostreatus can be found besides those trees mentioned in Field Guides.
