    i thought that too, but the bark comes off in huge chunks, very papery bark, also the wood seems very punky....i have only found morels on them when dead, or fallen or top cracked off....

    looks like Ash, ash bore beetle kill, ash trees have been good while dyeing, but thinning out and not producing , back in early 60s dutch elm disease killed off elm and remember as a kid they were good producers, I think a dying tree is good till it runs it course or a tree stump from logging

    yes, that an elm. if you look close you can see the little round holes made from the emerald ash borer! barks coming off cause it's dead or dying! Emerald ash borer is killing off all the ash trees!!
