Mushrooms especially morels are so subject to micro environment. If you have a bunch of rotting elms that’s when I’d plant them. But I’ll bet they’re already planted there

I am wondering if I could plant them under my Redbud. My wild onions are doing great in all the rotting leaves under there even being in the shade all the time.

Sure you can plant them. You just won't get them growing. Basically dead elm trees, almost dead apple trees, Elms, Sycamore, Ash (sometimes), Tulip Poplar...

I have read not to pull the shroom harvesting it. Just cut off the top and leave the bottom rooted.
That is my sum total of mushroom knowledge. I wouldn't know a morel from a toadstool. I buy them in stores.
