Morels and Forest Fires

February 16, 2012

The fires that affected our National Forest’s in Central and northern British Columbia left a legacy that has been repeated thousands of times in BC’s natural history. The burned areas provide ideal conditions for the growth of morel mushrooms, a fungus that is collected around the world and highly revered for its delicious flavor.

Morels grow abundantly in the first year after a forest fire if conditions are suitable. The time of year of the burn and the amount of rainfall after a fire are critical factors in determining morel production in these areas.

This web site gives the data for the forest fires around BC in 2011.
