Morels Under Crab Apples

Does anyone know if morels will grow under crab apple? I've had luck under domesticated apples before, but never really looked under wild crab apples. I found a spot with a lot of crab apples. I think they should start popping in the next week or so here in sw pa.

i usually don't find yellow morels until turkey season. Are the ones that you expect to find this week yellow or black?

Use to have a heck of a spot and it was nothing but crab apples. Then someone found it.

My best spots are under dead Elm trees. I look for trees that still have half their bark on them.
