I think it is good to have them for the positive side of producing n 5 to 7 years.

They are cheap,super fast growers and produce early. Dwarf Chinkapins are supposed to be good too but I havent found any yet.

I have mixed feelings. I have between 400-500 that are about ten years old. Mine are dropping acorns pretty good for the first time this year. They are not a bad looking tree, but don't seem as hardy as native oaks. They also seem to sucker and bush out more. They grow fast and probably don't have the lumber value usually associated with oaks. I also wonder about longevity. Mine were severely damaged by the late freeze we had a few years back. Some died back to the ground, some were severly damaged, and other just lost some smaller branches. My native oaks did not seem to suffer. That is likely the reason it is taking them this long to produce - I think that 5/7 year range is probably a good estimate normally.

I planted 600+ of them four years ago, but lost 50% due to drought. The ones that survived are growing very well. I'm very interested to observe when they produce acorns and IF my deer are attracted to them.

I'm blessed / cursed / by having numerous quality food soures. I'm hoping the Sawtooth's offer a little more diversity, encouraging deer to leave the ag fields and head into my hard woods during early archery season.
