When mushroom hunters begin to talk about how to find morel mushrooms, they talk about hunting trees.
It’s hunting for trees that is why in the documentary film The Mushroom Hunter, you’ll see my dad and his friend Vic looking up in the air and pointing off in the distance so much.
Twenty-five days left for you to help fund the film on Kickstarter
There’s two trees to get started with:
1. The almost dead or newly dead elm tree. These trees will produce roonies for years. The biggest tell tale sign I’ve heard about is the peeling bark.

2. The living ash tree, most easily identifiable through its white-colored splotchy marks.
