Burr Oak tree acorns ...!
I just found the very odd looking seeds from a tree in a local park that I found out is a Burr Oak ... the seeds are still green but huge & so bizzare-looking! I want to wait until the acorns inside are dry & drop & try to grow it. I read the Burr Oak is the state tree of Iowa. Has anyone had any experience with this tree? If so, what would you say for or against it as a shade tree? I live at 5200 ft. elevation, zone 7 & caliche soil.
The huge seeds were fascinating & I just had to take photos of them!
