It depends upon where you are. In the mid-Atlanic area, the best indicator I know
of is when the redbud trees blossom (also the cones of the tulip poplars begin to
resemble morels). But this reflects the morel's habitat in this area. I believe
morels are associated with evergreens in the Pacific Northwest and I doubt you have
large forests of tulip poplars with redbuds growing among them.
