    Can you guys please use this map and post the soil pH for the region in which you find the most morels consistently. . .I'm trying to see how accurate it is/ideal soil pH.

    You use it by zooming into your area with the magnifying glass with a + (selects a rectangular area, so don't just click)

    Then define your "AOI" with the red rectangle icon on the toolbar.

    Then click "Soil data explorer", a subtoolbar will pop up above the map, click soil reports, now a new list will appear on the left, select chemical properties, chemical soil properties, include minor soils, view soil report.

    The map will now display soil types, and scrolling down will give detailed info about the soil types (including PH).

    Posting this to Georgia and Oklahoma for different lattitude samplings.
