The very first morel report In the United States this year is in. Chris Matherly of Georgia said in his newsletter this week that the morel was found in Knoxville Tennessee on March 1st. This is somewhat early for this region and tell me the season might kick off early elsewhere across the state. With all the hard freezes we had along with plenty of spring rains I would expect a very nice morel season this year.

The morel found in Knoxville Tennessee by a gentleman known only as Ed is about the size of a penny. From its current size it would be about three to four more weeks until it is ready to be harvested.

We are looking to start some local Morel Hunters clubs as well if anyone is interested.

So far in Morgan County we are only finding small ones. Seems most are being found in lower elevations. I figure we are about 600 feet higher in elevation than Roane county so might try there.

Anyone out there finding any?

I have a heartbreaking story. My daughter-in-law dosed them with Round-up two years ago when she found them in their new back yard! Thought they were poison and afraid her little dog might eat one.
The Round-up worked.

I live west of ya all 30 miles south of Memphis over the Mississippi line, out in the country but no mountains but some good hills and woods. With your expertise, do you think they grow in this area?

When do morels appear on Doe Mtn. or Iron Mtn in Johnson County? Is it different down in the valleys?
If they grow on a slope, is it western or eastern?

I was thinking that the late winter might cause late appearance. However, these warm days are causing me to wonder....

I believe the only place I could search here would be piney woods, and morels grow in deciduous, hardwood forest or forest edges.
Years ago in another state I did love finding them. It's like fishing, you know. Certainly they are delicious, but looking for them is the thrill.
