Oak Nursery

The week of December 17 SMI set up an oak nursery, planting approximately 400 acorns collected from the SMI property. See the picture below of the initial set-up. Upon returning from the holiday, I was curious to check in on the acorns…to find it had taken a beating by the heavy rains as well as scavenged by the local squirrels.

Next step, harvest more acorns (hopefully we can find more this time of year) and reseed. This time we will cover the planters with screens.

    2008 info is very interesting. Is there any 2009 data?
