    :roll: Hi, we are going to try to find some morels in our area soon..First time doing so. Location is key. We have heavy pine areas not far from here. BUT it is on water company property, Was going to call and get permission to look around. But these trees re not cedar trees the are the jack pines, I think. Sandy storm destroyed a big stand of them, shame. Would morels be growing in these types of pine? And where else should we be looking. Apple trees old orchards are good as well, that too is on private property. Help please? We started mushroom hunting last year..is that any mushroom clubs nearby that we could join? Also what is the correct substrate to grow button mushrooms at home..seen many videos, very confusing.

    Here is a good link to get you started:

    http://ohiomushroomsociety.wordpress.com/2013/02/24/morels-and-how-to-find-them/

    Read as much as you can and apply what you read by getting out in the woods. Knowledge will definitely increase your chances of finding them. Better to apply that knowledge while in the woods rather than walking around aimlessly. I have though, on many occasions, found them by pure luck. When I tried to figure out why they were there based on what I read, there was no rhyme or reason. Best of luck!!
