I am not able to find anything in my research suggesting that these are not compatible. You will have to watch and make sure that the plant has no bad reaction to the tree. Some plants to have a hard time with the chemicals that the acorns emit into the soil, but I was unable to find anything that suggests that these two are not compatible.
