When my wife and I found out we were pregnant I got an idea. I picked up a Burr Oak acorn and tried to sprout it. Sure enough it sprouted and I planted it in the front yard.

Here is our baby boy and the "Baby Tree" I hope to keep taking pictures of them every year. So far they are 6 mo old.

If a deer shows up and eats the baby tree, what does it mean?

That's great. Cute little feller and a great native tree to plant. They'll grow fast.

Little suckers can surprise you when you're holding them and all the sudden they chomp down on your shoulder or neck.

My darling baby princess is a downright vampire when she's mad.

roflmao

I think I have more to worry about gophers than deer. I did plant it in a hole lined in chicken wire, so hopefully it will be safe!!!

If you do have deer in your tard ever, put something around the tree. I planted 3 about that size last year (burr oaks). 2 of em got eaten in one night and never recovered. Cool idea

Didn't know deer would eat them.

I have some on occasion that come up into the back yard, but never seen them venture past the brush line and almost always only at night. I now have neighbors between me and the creek bottom they came out of so I doubt it but may put some mesh wire around it.
