Two trees and ashes

A quote from the Ecology section of the Supplemental Data from the Morel Mycologia article above.

“they grow under the drip line of incense cedar in an old apple orchard. I planted the cedars 15 years ago when they were only three inches tall. Roots of an old, living apple tree are also in the same area. The trunk of the tree is within fifteen feet of the morels. . . . Absolutely no fires since I have lived here, but I have spread fireplace ashes in the area, under the apple trees”
