Mast Crop 2016

I put this question out to any of you forestry types or others in the know. What is the prediction on mast crop in the Adirondacks this year, particularly beech nuts and cherries??

Mast Crop

My driveway is full of acorns and trees are full. I've got four scrub apple trees and they are full of green apples. Have not been up on the mountain to check out the beech trees.

How are the Beech trees doing? It seems where ever I go in the Adks, which might be limited, the Beech trees are all suckers and blight infested.

I've got 19 apple trees on my property that I care for. A few that got hit with frost in the spring are not producing. A few are doing really well. The rest are in between. Got some small acorns on the oaks too. I'm going up Sleeping Beauty Mt tomorrow and will check some oaks and beeches at a higher elevation and report back. We don't have cherry here like they do in the northern ADKs.

Hey Trapper 30-30, that's what I hunt with too!

I was up on the West side of Buck Mt this morning checking out the mast crop-think I found out why our flowers are taking such hit this year- I saw very few acorns anywhere, I was up to the 1000' elevation- I did see some Butternuts but nothing else..I expected to see green acorns on the ground following the storm that we recently had. Will be up next week when I am back at camp...waiting to hear from Dan from the other side of the mt...the good news is the Lake trout are still hitting....dave
