Does anyone know if the MDC will have Concordia oaks this season? Im also looking for any other hybrid oak species available that is a fast growing producer. Concordia oak is a mix of Swamp white,chinkapin and dwarf chinkapin I believe,correct me if Im wrong.
Gotcha I wasn't sure letemgrow was on this forum or not,I just haven't paid that much attention.Either way,I need more Concordia oaks this fall or at least some good acorns.When my trees are producing,I will supply others as I will have a plenty..
Matt, I am going to show my lack of experience. But I think you would get scion wood off of a concordia oak and graft it to a bur oak root stock. As it goes forward you would prune any growth that shows below the graft on the burr root stock.
About 4 years ago I contacted Jon Peterson in Concordia MO (he is a very nice older gentleman who operates an auto repair business - at least he did at that time); his family was linked to the original concordia oak tree in some way (may have been his father?). At any rate, I sent him around $20 to send me 30-40 acorns which he did. Unfortunately, they were all so dry that none germinated. I am sure Mr. Peterson did not intend to stiff me; I suspect he doesn't understand the importance of keeping acorns moist and cool. Since the name John/Jon Peterson has been mentioned repeatedly on this thread it appears some may want to contact him - or other persons in Concordia Mo - to get acorns. The sole purpose of this post is to encourage anyone who makes contact with folks in Concordia ... explain the importance of collecting fresh acorns and make sure they keep them moist and cool before they ship them to you. Good luck.
