One Tree

I've often read about folks finding a bushel basket full around one big tree and I always figured it was possible back in the day, but not now..

So, I left this morning about 11AM to head for the creek. But then I remembered I was going to scout an area real close to home. So I turned around and got to the locale. I headed in and found 2 right away but it was real swampy and not very good I figured, so I got back out to the van and started road trolling. This road is maybe an 8th of a mile long and a dead end. No traffic. So I see this monster dead elm looming in the distance.
I glance down and what do I see? Fat morels literally everywhere.
I paced it off at 140 feet. So morels were fruiting off of one tree 70 feet from center in both directions. Here is the tree.

Just when you think you aren't going to find any morels, something pushes you to climb that next hill. And once you get over that hill, guess what you find? That's right. NOTHING!
