How far north?

Into Maine and New York yet?

Let’s just hope the elms, and the accompanying morels, move with them. The more northern birch/aspen/maple/fir/pine woods seem to be terrible for morels, nevermind the pure-conifer boreal forests even farther north.

are spreading north and west. Here in NE PA areas west of the Susquehanna they showed up about 5 years ago. Make certain to thoroughly check yourself.

Small elms are often good producers of morels. The really big elms are mostly gone around here. But groves of elms that attain a height of 25 feet or so (and then die) can produce great results.

Yeah… it’s too early in the season to see mature knotweed.

As long as they were not attached for more than 24 hours you will be fine. Nice finds!

The plant is Equisetum arvense. Japanese Knot Weed is just starting to send up new shoots here. Dutch Elm Disease killed just about every elm in the area about thirty years ago, so standing dead elm is uncommon but there are a few small ones at this spot. Many of these had no obvious tree host. The dog and I were covered with ticks at this spot. About 50% or more of the deer ticks tested in this area carry Lyme disease. I ended up with two bites…what are my chances?

Looks like scouring rush to me. Japanese knotweed is a lot larger than that, at least where I’ve seen it in the Pacific Northwest.

Is that Japanese Knotweed

where those nice morels are growing? There didn’t happen to be a nice dead elm nearby? The esculanta types have also been very nice down here in PA this spring.
