Acorns 101: A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding and Identifying Acorns

 

 

In this informative video, our ISA Certified Arborist Wes takes us on a journey through the fascinating world of oak trees and their acorns. He addresses commonly asked questions about these majestic trees and their intriguing fruits, acorns.

Wes starts by explaining that acorns are the fruits or seeds of an oak tree. He paints a vivid picture of the lifecycle of an oak tree – beginning as a small acorn that falls from the tree and, with the right conditions, can germinate and sprout into a mighty oak.

Wes also delves into the sexual characteristics of oak trees, explaining that all oak trees are monoecious, meaning they possess both male and female flowers. This attribute allows every oak tree to produce acorns, a feature that sets them apart from dioecious trees, which are exclusively male or female, and only female trees produce fruits.

In response to common concerns about excessive acorn production, Wes explains that acorn production varies annually and is largely uncontrollable. This variability leads to some years witnessing smaller acorn crops, while others may see large or ‘bumper’ crops.

Apart from detailing their biological significance, Wes also talks about the ecological importance of acorns. They are a vital source of food for wildlife and play an instrumental role in reforesting our oak forests.
