Acorn Production for 2005
Overall, acorn production is fair this year. White oaks have limited production and chestnut oaks are fair with poor production in the mountain region. Red oak production was good this year. Acorn production can be quite variable from year to year with crops ranging from several hundred pounds per acre in excellent years to almost no production in poor years. Other hard and soft mast crops such as: hickories, blackgums, crabapples, persimmons and grapes provide alternative food sources highly utilized by wildlife in north Georgia during fall and winter when mast crops are poor or fail altogether.
