Aspen Oysters

Recommended Posts

You should try looking for them. "Poplars" hybridize easily on their own and also deliberately by growers. The genetic purity of many wild  and planted trees is hard to prove. As long s your hybrids are derived from North American species, you have a chance at finding some oysters.

My property has some pure trembling aspen and also balsam poplar. But some trees are hard to put a definite label on, I think because of natural hybridization. I have found "summer" oyster mushrooms on all of them

Ok. I was a little late checking for them, so what I found was too old. I did find them on hybrid poplar.  But every one I saw was on trees 1-3” in diameter.  None of the bigger poplars or downed poplar had any growing on them.
