COLUMBUS - The 2017 acorn mast survey conducted on 37 wildlife areas throughout Ohio shows a below average year for white oaks and above average red oak acorn production, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Ohio’s fall crop of acorns is an important food source for more than 90 forest wildlife species, and mast crop abundance can influence hunting plans.

ODNR Division of Wildlife employees scanned the canopies of selected oak trees on wildlife areas to determine the percentage of trees that produced acorns and the relative size of the acorn crop.
