Can a Tree Be Stopped from Producing Acorns?

Anonymous added on April 25, 2014 | Answered

Can a tree's growth of acorns be stopped in some way? I shoveled bags upon bags of acorns in the fall, and now I am digging the acorns I missed out of my yard. It is so much work but my trees are very mature and healthy.

No, unfortunately not. You cannot stop Mother Nature from doing what it's meant to do. While I realize it is tedious (I have oaks in my own yard), this is what these trees are supposed to do - it's their purpose. The older they get, the more you will see. However, squirrels and many birds love acorns, so they should be helpful in getting some of them up for you too.
