I can't seem to find any information on how long morels can continue to come up after a burn.

Example- is it worth hunting a burn that is 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc. Years old?

Down here in CA I hunt the burns up to about 4 years after. The quantity goes down (usually) each year after the first spring flush but it is usually worth checking those areas out again. As usual though, Morels are like most mushrooms: they are hard to establish a pattern for! My advise would be to check your areas just in case, at least for a couple/few seasons. Happy Shroomin'.....

PS....if the wildfires burn super hot it can virtually sterilize the soil and you may not find hardly any shrooms. Such was the case down here last year; many areas within the fire zones didn't even sprout grass this year! Too hot!......
