    Found and picked 14 small ones in York county. Greys. Looks like the frost got them Saturday morning. Very dry and a couple fallen over that were tiny and dried up. Some nice and healthy though. Hope we get some rain this weekend. Anyone else in or around York county finding any?

    Jpv1125 if you dont mind me askin do you look rite around the base of the poplars or look for dead ones or just look pretty much everywhere. The ones I found were pretty close to a dying ash. I thought it was a elm but today I determined it was a ash. I left some little ones to grow. Should I go back to that spot every couple days? Will they continue to pop up? Or do they all pop up at once? Good luck hunting that ash tomorrow! My neighbor has some real nice 4 to 5 inch blacks growing under his tulip polpars I was helping him find today. So I think I'm going to search some poplar and sycamore tomorrow and every ash I see along the way lol

    P.A.Hunter What I've learned is to find the trees that they are associated with like ash,elm, poplar,sycamore and what I do is search everywhere. I've found them in a group of 20+ or 1-2 by them selves I'm new like you! I found 1 spot last year where i found grays and yellows checked it 4 days ago nothing looked yesterday 4 blacks going back tomorrow I hope the grays and yellows are there. This are a lot of smart people on this site I read everything. I hope this helps! Happy Hunting
