Not sure if this will help : Some years ago, while doing some autumn
landscaping under some white oak trees, I was amazed at the number of new
seedlings. It had been a particularly heavy crop of acorns, enough to
carpet the soil, even with squirrel activity. The acorns seemed to be
sprouting almost as soon as touching the ground; brand new oaks on 4"
centers ! In the same site the next spring, I found maybe 6, total. So I
would recommend 'House' or 'Florida' if you want them to survive.
