could be Morchella rigida.
The last one is greyish and spruce-like.
But as there will not be a consensus in Morchella it is of no use arguing about a name. Everyone has his own concept about morels. And besides the color can change from young too old, it has a huge variety in morels and is no good distinguishing character.

I think this can’t be M. vulgaris because this species has greyish colors, often a copped shape like a Picea tree and irregular ledges. Here you could see a finding of M. vulgaris (left) and the cropped illustration from the Boudier-Plates (right):
…and a haitat photo of the collection:
