You have to define what production is to you. If thats a few nuts then you can have those in just a few years, this is how nurseries advertise because the lower the # of years the more they will sell to hunters. I do not define it this way. If I cant fill a 5 gallon bucket, then I do not call it production. Think of it this way, on their website they are claiming 800 pounds of nuts/acre after 10 years. That is in really good conditions and PER ACRE being the key words. They are figuring that on 100 trees per acre. So 8 pounds of nuts per tree after 10 years in really good conditions that probably none of us will do. Figuring on their averages of 25-35 nuts per pound with 30 nuts per pound that would be about 240 nuts per tree after 10 years. I guess what Im saying is that there is no magic tree for instant gratification out there, they all take time to get decent production.

Yea I do not mean just a few nuts. I meant, how long until it is enough that you can sucessfully hunt by them. Thanks for all the respones. Im probably going to plant some along with my sawtooth trees.
