This plantation

has been a great year round spot. I believe it was planted in 86 and has about 6 species of pine as well as hemlock, one very old oak, birch, and a spot of poplar. The owners keep it ‘clean’ and do work about 25 times a year. I have wasted easily 30 or so hours a week in there since last September and a great deal of my finds are from there. I am always amazed at the diversity! I never thought to look for burned sections in hopes of Morchella, but there was the section and there they were.
There were hundreds of Helvella chinesis there today!

two spots near me where I find these are always shaped like this with the long fat stipe

Though I know that all M. species come in varieties of shapes, mine are both near river embankments, and very damp.

Nice Helvella too.

This was in a pine tree plantation in an area that had been burned. The sun’s been out a few days now but this space is always damp. No water or embankment.

there a large amount of water, or an embankment enabling large water flow near these?
