I see morels occasionally with no apparent association with trees. I get Morchella esculenta types in a burn site with blackberry being the biggest “shrub”. Also the wood mulch morels which I have seen a couple times are not associated with trees.

It is interesting because this is yet another place morels grow — they do seem to be ubiquitous.

Also, I have not heard of many that are NOT associated with trees, or any that grow on peat moss. Were there any larger trees or shrubs around, besides the small succulent plants?

Maybe the only interest

Maybe the only interest of this observation is corroborated that this species is also present in these latitudes.

really loves the plants it is growing with

But I am not going quite that far for morels!
