Persimmons are loaded up here too. When I was walking around in the woods last weekend, there was already a bunch of hickory nuts on the ground.
Should be tons of white oaks, but I havent noticed much on red oaks up here. Last year's frost should have got them.
In my area (Arkansas River Valley), the persimmons and white oaks are loaded. The post oaks on the hill where I live are loaded too. But the 2 weeks of 100+ degree heat we had has taken a toll on them. I doubt the acorns on them will mature because their leaves are turning yellow and falling off.
White oak and post oak are heavier than i've seen maybe ever. Persimmon, muscadine, possum grape, hickory nut, all mast with the exception of red oak is loaded this year. You know we had that freeze a year ago April and they claim red oak crops are determined by the previous years blossoms, so they would have been killed by the freeze spring 2007.
I hope I'm wrong but I don't think we are going to have many acorns at all around Polk Co. Got another freeze in early April that did a number on the oak blooms I'm afraid. That'll be 2 years in a row if so. :smack:
