    Does anyone know of a good place to buy an older DCO seedling. Say 3-4 years old? I have one in my yard that tried to produce acorns this year but none got pollinated. I thought it may cross with some of the other white oaks that I have but apparently DCO doesn’t cross very easily.

    The moral of this story is to always plant at least three of whatever it is that you are planting so you have a backup in case one of them dies. I only planted two at my house.

    DCO should produce in 2-3 years. I attempted to dig a 3 year old and failed because of the massive root system.

    Checked my one DCO that managed to set an acorn this year out in the deer woods and it’s no where near close to being ready. Probably at least a couple more weeks. This tree is 5 years old and is about 3’ tall.
