My Willow Oaks were the only trees w/acorns this year, very small lil things. I had tons of hickory nuts though.
Not one. Dog is very disappointed by the lack of squirrels to chase around. Somebody told me insects (Cicadas?) ate the ends off the the branches. I did see a lot of tips on the ground this year.
I have never heard of such a thing.I got rid of the trees that made a mess in the driveway, but the side hill is still covered with them. Makes it fun trying to cut the grass on a very steep incline. My neighbor has this acorn-picker-upper thing and he's been out there all week scarfing acorns off his lawn.
I have 7 big trees in the front yard and have 5 in the back, not counting the ones in the woods. Used to be 8 in back, until a couple of storms knocked out 3 of them.My previous house had a half dozen huge oaks. Think it was the last year we were there when there was a huge bumper crop of acorns, my concrete patio in back of my house was covered in like 3 inches of huge acorns. Previous years were less than half of that year.
