Very Bad News for Me!

Discussion in 'Mushroom Hunting' started by goggleye57, Feb 3, 2006.

  1. My main mushroom hunting grounds are in southern Cheyboygan county. And I mostly hunt Black Ash trees- and now the emerald ash beetle is in the area- The only way to fight it is to cut and burn thousands of ash trees:banghead3

    Hey Goggle, If they do end up burning all of the ash trees...never fear. Did you know that Morels will grow extraordinarily after a forest fire??? It's one of Mother Natures ways that is hard to explain. Larry Lonik (The Mushroom Man) who passed away a couple years bag once told me that after a fire, mushrooms come in by the thousands. maybe this could be a good thing for you ...
     

  3. I agree with the mushrooms after a fire, we once had a field fire back home and it took out the first 100 ft of the woods, never seen mushrooms in that stretch before, but after for a couple of years, tons of them.

    This Ash Borer has got to be eliminated, before it decides it likes trees other than Ash!
