Do anyone no how often oak trees drop acorns?
I've lived in my house for just over 2 years and this is the first year that our oak tree has dropped acorns. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
As I remember they are cyclic depending on the type. We have a lot of oak trees that are on a 7 year cycle. Two years ago they were dropping off like popcorn. Much less now but there are still a lot of leaves to cleanup :-) - Todd Hoff
Yeah, the amount of leaves that a large oak tree can generate is indeed staggering. - Scoble, Alex Scoble from IM
As often as necessary - Alex Scrivener
weirdly - it's every 2 years (so i've heard) - andy brudtkuhl
"Do anyone no?" Tsk tsk, Alex. - Derrick
He just did it improperly. - Akiva
Come agin? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
About once per acorn. - Daniel J. Pritchett
Oak trees can start producing acorns when they are 20 years old, but sometimes can go all the way to 50 years for the first production. By the time the tree is 70 to 80 years old it will produce thousands of acorns. The oak trees produce acorns once a year during the fall. Acorn production varies year to year and normally alternates. Not even the healthiest and largest oak can accumulate enough food and energy to produce strong crops two years in succession. Real strong acorn productions might happen every four to ten years. In addition, a late spring frost can blight the flowers which prevents acorn development. http://www.arcytech.org/java... - Rochelle
DO ANYBODY NO WHY ROCHELLE IS BETTER GOOGLER THAN ALEX? - Trent Olson
Because Alex was too lazy to google it? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
My trees went 6 years with no accorns then made up for it 1 year - Tony C (Unrated) from fftogo
I WIN - Rochelle
Our trees only drop one acorn a year. But that acorn weighs about 90 lbs. - Akiva
Akiva just took Rochelle's trophy out of her hands during her acceptance speech. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
IMMA LET YOU FINISH BUT THIS IS THE BIGGEST FUCKIN' ACORN OF ALL TIME - Akiva
I've got a similar guestion: Do anybody no how many pineapples grow in a tree / season? - Jemm
I'm literally laughing out loud...congratulations. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
DO ANYBODY NO IS ACORN THE OPPOSITE OF CORN - Trent Olson
[courtsies] - Akiva
Jemm: Since there are Pine trees and Apple trees, it's logical to think there are Pineapple trees, but no. They grow as a sort of bush. Sorta like a carrot, but completely different. - Ken Sheppardson
@Ken: Yeah, it was a trick question:) - Jemm
This thread is buh-nanas. ROFL. - Derrick
Scrat would be all over this thread - Scoble, Alex Scoble from IM
Acorn A drops from 20ft and acorn B drops from 15ft half a second later. Given this information, what will be the price of the fat-free milk on July 2012. Don't forget how the color of your underwear affects the results. - Jemm
XD at the 90 lb. acorn. I might need to draw that or something. That is an *awesome* mental image.... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
