I noticed the oaks are full of blooms around here. Should be a very heavy acorn year. Just like 2019.

It won't be a great year unless we get some good rain. Being down several inches already means we may be going into a drought, and acorns are not good in drought.

We'll see. This time of year the oaks are always in full bloom and shedding pollen like crazy tho...the green carpet of pollen in alive and well

Agreed

I was told once by an old biologist that the oak trees will sometimes produce more in a bad year with less rain than in a wet one. He said it was the tree's reaction to feeling threatened and put on a bumper crop.

Anyone know if this is true or not? I do know I've seen trees cover the ground even when it was a very dry year before.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

I have heard this before but don’t know if it’s true or not.
We’ve had bumper crops during wet years.
Last summer was dry and hardly any acorns

It looks like we've lost two in our front yard....live oaks... bang

They are going to leave a large hole in the landscape....30+ year old trees

A good acorn year generally means, on my place, a bad year hunting.
