    Hey shroomdoggiedog, I've newer to this board (just started last year) and newer to hunting. I know some of their favorite trees... ash. elm, tulip, apple. I want to know how far away from the trunks I should be looking. Ironically, my best find was near a pine (around 30' tall and 12" trunk)... as close as 3 feet from the trunk to 15 feet away... there were about a dozen from 1 1/2 inch to 5 in. I would describe them as gray or brown.

    I have three spots (5 acres and above in Hamilton, Clermont and Highland counties) that I can search and would love to have a companion of any experience.

    @ daveshere61 sometimes the morels are right up against the trees, sometimes out to end of canopy and beyond, if u find any just keep looking in that area and watch how the land drains, follow the contour of the land and downhill

    @BrYan Thank you for the information. The downhill drainage info. confirms what I've read. When I found the morels under/around the pine, the few small ones were under it and close ...the bigger, plump ones were about 4 feet from the 'canopy'.

    @Bobcat I forgot to mention sycamore trees.

    I've read a couple of finds from southern states that said they were having luck in dry creek beds. Is that a place to look here?

    Any idea what kind of pine that was?

    @ ksu.shroomer No, I'm not sure what kind of pine it is. It has shorter needles... just over a 1/2 inch.

    any Old Pine is where I always find the 1st Blacks of the year Pine Neddles keep the ground warmer then Reg Trees so Just Find some Older Pine Trees But it doesn't Mean there will be shrooms under or around them its just another Place to Look and if you ever Notice to Find Mushrooms the Biggest and Best think to do is Just SLOW down and Look.
