Update on my oak trees!

Just thought I'd update on how my oak tress are doing!
There are new ones sprouting every day and these are just a few pictures of what has grown so far!

Are these local bur oak that you've sprouted? We have some here that are like bonsai. I cut a small fence line early in our time here on the Roseau River and cut a small bur oak. I counted the rings and was astonished to find it this little 10cm trunk belonged to a fifty year old tree. That's when I became really interested in the local oaks. I would venture a guess that there are trees here that are 300 years old. They aren't affected by the fires like the poplar. Now they are one of my favourite trees.

Where are you going to plant them? Did you freeze the acorns before you planted them?
