Welcome to my new blog. As you can tell by my content I am only just learning. I love rambling around the hills of Ashland and taking photos. As you will see my favorite models are the wonderful old oak trees around here.
Oak trees: They can live to be over 200 years old and some are known to be 1000 years old.
They usually don't start producing acorns until they are 20 to 50 years old and then their production varies
having a very strong production once every 4 years.
The chances of an acorn becoming a tree are 1 in 10000.
Up to 90% of acorn production can be destroyed by larvae, birds, and squirrels.
Oaks in the winter are amazing to behold. Their shapes are so varied. Just one of earths amazing sights. Get out and enjoy.
