You need to protect them from the squirrels. However you chose to do it. I put bird netting/chicken wire over the top of my pots and hold it on with a wire. The trees just grow right through a hole in the netting, then I cut them off in the fall. Thats just me though, but however you chose to, you need to protect them.

Is that just if you are starting them from seed in the pots outside? Mine are about 12" tall and will plan on moving to bigger pots and placing outside in next couple of weeks. Is the root/nut still attractive to the squirrels at that stage? Thanks for the insight.

No no... just starting with the nut. I have had them dig them up when the trees were around 12-18 inches, however the nut was still attached.
