Ash Tree
 
Just got home from Wolverine. So sad that all the ash trees are dead. Some woods look like pick up sticks.

yeah it's a major bummer. they have been dead here in the thumb for years. Every once in a while i will find one that has some suckers popping out the base of the trunk, or find a patch of like saplings. but seems like they rarely make it past a 4-6in. tree diameter around here. I see monster dead ones all the time and think to myself.... this probably USED to be a good spot to pick... and then i shake my head and walk on.

We found the same thing everywhere we went this year. Breaks our hearts that our kids and grands will never know the plenty that those woods provided. We have to trust that nature will take over and the morel will find another host tree, although it may take a decade or more to see those results. :(

Mother nature is resilient she will find a new host tree for her beloved morels I was in IL this year and found them around maple trees and one oak tree or check sumac grows in it here in WI

I've found them growing around Eastern White Pine. Also look for them around Pin Oak.

This year I have KILLED them around Maple trees in old ash stands. It has been consistent. This week alone I have found 701 in 2 days, Tuesday and Saturday, around mostly maple trees in the Boyne area. Hopefully it continues and spreads in the coming years.

Devasting to see our beautiful, majestic ash trees snapping like toothpicks. When we didn't find morels we always took comfort in our beautiful surroundings of the ash covered forest ....so sad

I think mother nature indeed will grow those precious mushrooms under other host tree's. This year I found them under maple tree's in several spots.

On the plus side, if you like Dryad's Saddle (Pheasant Backs,) it appears that many of the dead ash trees are hosting them.
