#12 Oak seedling #15 – May 20

This is Oak seedling #15 on May 20. My wife found about 20 White Oak acorns in High Park last fall and wanted to see if they would grow. Over the winter we kept them in our back yard covered with oak leaves and chicken wire. Squirrels can smell the good acorns and eat most of them.  Even if they do manage to survive and take root, they are very difficult to transplant, due to their extremely long and delicate tap root.
