also look for tree’s that show weakness…or damage……..dropped limbs…..holey trunks…..just signs that a fungus has moved in…..I was told to look up more than down to spot the right tree’s…..then look in that area for more.
The maitake like’s the heart wood of a tree …which is essentially dead wood anyway….. so it doesn’t necessarily kill the tree, but does open the door to other fungi that will.

My best tree is a dead snag that’s 20 foot tall with no limbs

Today’s haul wasn’t huge but we’re happy. About 4 lbs of Hens and some Hericium Coralloides to try. Have never had that before. They’re a little worse for the wear because my husband took a tumble and fell on Them!

A question…is this the remains of a Hen? If so, do I ever have a tree to keep my eye on next year. There were five of there around it.

Found all of these hens around one oak tree today. Some were fresh enough to cook or freeze, others will be for drying. Some of the ones that were a little dry actually perked up with washing. Probably about 15-20 lbs total.

I don’t think the season is done in St. Louis, it’s been unseasonably warm. We just got more rain so I will try again this weeked.
