As a rule of thumb, potential tree hosts can be located as far away from the symbiotic mushrooms they nourish as x1.5 the length of trunk.

The yard does have oaks! They are farther away though, the sweet gum is closest to where they were growing.

There must have been some other hardwoods, like oaks, in the immediate vicinity. I am not aware of any boletes, or any mushrooms for that matter, growing mycorrhizally with this tree species.
