Re: Tree polypores...Chicken Mushrooms?

Check out the snow banks this winter at this location.

This snowbanks look tall because there is a big embankment there, which I would have had to climb to get to the tree to get the Chicken Mushrooms, plus they were 15 ft or so up in the tree.
(You can see the Cherry Tree as a stand-alone tree in the 1978 photo in the link.)

I plan on visiting this location in the spring and taking more photos with no snow on the ground, plus seeing if any morels grow around the ash trees on the hillside.

This past fall was so snowy that I didn't even visit the tree to see if it had Chicken Mushrooms growing on it. What a difference a year makes!
