Does any one know any White Oaks trees growing around Melbourne or Central Victoria where I could collect the acorns? Particularly specimens with edible acorns. Also which month(s) is it likely the acorns will be ready for collection? I am planing to plant them in the centre of small gorse patches. I will first cut the gorse and and use the prunings to keep browsers away from the seedings. Eventually they may shade out the gorse regrowth. If all goes well, several decades on there should provide summer paddock shade, and carbohydrates from the acorns for animals and humans.
