Observation 93607: Morchella Dill. ex Pers.
When: 2012-04-29
Who: BlueCanoe
No herbarium specimen

Notes: A single specimen found in a forest of ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir at relatively low elevation. Forest had been thinned and burned at low severity (presumably a controlled fuel reduction) probably 5-10 years ago. Cut and burned stumps were still intact but soft from rot, while black scorch on living tree trunks displayed fresh, unburned bark in the furrows from subsequent growth of trees. Ceanothus shrubs regrown, new tree seedlings established post-fire. White balance calibrated using gray card.

I added the details to the observation notes.

They do look like “burn morels”

I just picked some again from my burn pile.

Not a burn site?
