Does it look like mid 20's will kill this years acorn crop?

I would be prepared for no acorns this fall. I remember in April of 2007 we hit the 20s after green up. All the leaves turned black, not a single acorn that year on my place.

I don't know if the oak blooms have formed yet. The late green-up MIGHT save us, but it's not looking good.

I'm in Carroll county, my red oaks have long blooms everywhere...
The White oaks are just beginning to come in.

My latest area forecast is showing 1 - 2 hours of freezing temps early Wednesday morning (4-6 am). I'm hoping this won't hurt anything.

Apples can take 25 degrees for couple of hours the best I can remember.

Yes. I have posted that chart before that lists the % kill. With Nashville calling for 28, Im afraid the mountain will be below 25. Hope not.

Most of the oaks here near Fairview are blooming heavy. It will probably be a good year to plant some corn (to leave standing)if the temps do get in the 20's. There is one positive thing about a poor mast crop, the deer will have to move more to find their groceries. This will make hunting much easier for those who like to watch green fields.
