Collection location: Millersylvania State Park, Thurston Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]
Near the same patch from an observation/collection a few weeks ago in similar substrate environment.
Upper canopy is mostly Doug fir but these vine maples beneath in the lower canopy seem to be a desirable environment for this particular Morchella strain.
In Eastern WA we find Morchella esculenta in true pine canopies associated with small maple saplings in the lower forest floor as well.

Sea level pretty much- Millersylvania state park is just south of Olympia by about 20 miles. Really early and unusual for us to find these below mid elevation range. We usually head East to Wenatchee, WA in April and May for “naturals.” Really pumped to keep finding Morchella close by!
Thanks for posting! What elevation are you seeing these morels fruit?
