FINALLY! Found 16 morels yesterday, May 9, in northern Wabash County, near N. Manchester. Mostly greys, some yellows. Smallish--sizes ranged from 2.5--5 inches. All found within 3 feet of the base of 2 different dying elms. The most productive tree was newly dying last year, when it produced 35-40. Yesterday, I found 14 of the 16 near this tree. The other tree is pretty close to being a barkless, dead skeleton--surprising that it is still producing at all. It has produced 2-3 morels for each of the past 3 years, which is unusual in my experience. I usually find dozens the first year the tree starts losing bark and shows no leafbudding, then maybe 3-6 the next year and then typically none.
Other trees in the same forest, similar conditions had 0 morels. Always so mysterious why one produces and another that looks equivalent in every way does not.

Found 16 beautiful, large (4.5-6 inches tall and about 3 inches in diameter) yellow morels on Sat. May 11 in northern Wabash County (N. Manchester area). All under a newly dying elm (leafless but not yet shedding its bark) on a north-facing slope. Went back last night and found one more under the same tree. It appeared fresh--don't think I overlooked it on Saturday, though possible it was smaller then and hidden under leaves.
