    Hi Bluefoot,
    May I ask where you hail from? I'm from Sterling Run, near Benezette. Up here, we're well into the ramps, already. Juneberry is just breaking out. High water again. Gonna put on rain gear and muck around outside, anyway.

    It could be that you are finding old fence lines. Many times I've noticed this in the woods. Often times I've wandered down these tree lines and found those one or two old locust posts still sticking up out of the ground. A fence line was established, and everything on either side was cut down to provide lumber for building, and open up the land for pasture or farming.

    Has anyone else noticed that the ground cover growth is way ahead of the tree blooming this year?

    In Allegheny/Washington Counties, the trees are at least 2 weeks ahead of last year. I'm finding many things are ahead of the mayapples.

    Yes, Tran, the groundcover is way ahead of the trees. The trees are finally opening. Ramps, trout lillies, may apples, violets all beat em this year.

    I’m confused this year the mayapples are a week early where I’m from in nw Allegheny and I start to hunt when there a little below my knees. But yet ligoneir hasn’t been finding many morels and I’m usually 4 days behind them but ahead of butler and there finding them there.
