Re: Ash Trees in Northern LP

Yes they are toast. I only have a few that actually produce now. Give it another three years and none of them will. It's a bummer.

Re: Michigan Morel group hunt 2017?

I've got a couple ideas for locations... can set up PM'a or something as it gets closer? Don't really want 100 friends but a couple dozen could be tons of fun.

Idk the picture looks like a golden chant to me. If it has false gills, typically forking out at the cap, should be good. We need good pics of the mushrooms you found.
