Effects of logging on known woods?

Has anyone experienced your known producing woods usually filled with elms, being logged and thinned out significantly. What effect did it have on the morel production? Many more elms are now "dead" but I think too much sun is getting in and may not produce very good at all? Looking for experienced shroomer experiences to comment on this.

Zeuss: Go through this area!! You'll find a ton of morels more than likely. I now try to find areas that have been logged over every year. Last year we went to one of our usual spots and logging had been done along a power line. We found about 5 pds of morels in less than 2 hrs. I drove past this same power line and there had been clearing along another mile so we'll head back there this year. Logged areas produce for one to a few years and then, like most morel areas, quit producing. Report back and let us know how you do. I'd bet it'll be great!
