Are you serious that they have grown from 6' to 20' in only 5 years? They sure look good. Your pictures sure help to encourage my efforts at trees, Football Hunter.

Well, after looking at one of my Bur Oaks yesterday that was planted December 2010, I can see how yours could be that big. I haven't been able to get to mine since March because of standing water. I was shocked how much growth had happened in one Spring/Summer season. The tree is 7 feet tall at least. Unlike your case though, I sure didn't keep competition down this year - obviously, if I didn't go back there until yesterday, huh? \:\) It is a regular jungle with lots and lots of deer sign. 8 foot tall wild trees - honey locust mainly - blackberries, weeds of all sorts, etc. I had sprayed around all the trees with RoundUp in March so at least the competition was eliminated going into Spring. I don't think it mattered much though with so much rain this year. I fertilized each tree in February also. I was going to bush hog it Saturday but decided to leave it a thicket until after deer season to take advantage of hunting it. The spot is about 8 acres with about 45 trees on it. 16 fruit and the rest various oaks.

As soon as deer season ends though it HAS to be bush hogged or I am going to lose it.

To clarify, I did keep competition away from the trees the past 2 growing seasons.

Do you know when they (sawtooth) start dropping? My white oaks are starting to drop a few acorns, but my sawtooth still look fairly immature.
