My oak tree….I typed my question in additional details and am a hunt and peck guy. Bill
We have had an older white oak tree in our yard. We have lived here for 20 + years and have never had acorns. This year their are thousands and thousands that have fallen already this year. What is going on?? Look forward to your response.

You are right on time. It takes about 20 years for oak trees to start producing acorns. Peak production doesn't occur till between 50 and 80 years. A single tree can produce 10,000 acorns in one year. However, bumper crops don't usually happen every year, more like every three to five years.
