Looking for Bur Oak acorns .
Trying to grow trees out of them, to replace trees we lost
this spring during a wicked late may snow storm, that took down lots of our trees in our yard .

Thank you

I have some Bur Oak seeds collected this fall from two trees, one is very big in a golf range and the other is a young tree on the street.

I tired to grow trees from seeds but so far no success. I have planted Bur Oak seeds for more than three weeks, nothing happend so far.

Have you ever done this before?

I believe the acorns need a cold period

Plant them outside now in pots and leave outside all winter where they can get rained/snowed on . Watch for germination around May
