Acorn Prediction

For the past 3-4 weeks, the acorn drop has sounded like hail... in short bursts... metal shop/office roof just is a loud reminder of the "drop".


A mental calculation of the estimated pounds per tree of 5 lbs. X 110 Oak trees would estimate the acorn crop to be around 600 lbs, on the 1/2 acre... in  a drought year.. but the site is under irrigation.


Squirrels will be fat this winter and no doubt will have large litters next spring!
