Description: Direct sowing of oak acorns has not always met with success. This paper summarizes recent research regarding direct sowing of oaks in research plots and commercial trials. Present findings indicate that seedlings can be established from properly stored acorns sown any month of the year by hand or machine. They should be sown at a 2-inch depth, although they can be sown up to 6 inches deep.

Keywords: Quercus falcata var. pagodifolia, Q. nigra, Q. nuttallii, Q. shumardii.
