Went out today looking for ramsheads, the good news found a bunch at my two favorite trees. The bad news too old and water logged. However, found two new big oaks with a few at the base. I took two volley ball sized ones last saturday and noticed how new growth came off the stem I cut. This is the earliest I have found them. If you leave a few "flowers" on the root will it most likely continue to grow?
Got to agree that preference is likely to do with the prodominant spiece of oak in your area. Up in Tioga county, we've found ~3-4 HUGE heads - or what's left of them this time of year - all on big old White Oaks.
