We felled a walnut last year (too many neighbour complaints about walnuts raining on their greenhouse) at my sister's house last year. It was planted as a nut by my mum probably 25 years ago, fruited prolifically every year, much better and more regular than mine but we're much more exposed here, almost always suffer late spring frosts.

I don’t have the heart to fell it yet as some little mammal thought it a good idea to 
‘replace’ at the time lol.
Better than volunteers to plant trees especially as a covert operation….

Little buggers. Did anyone see Primates, the best bit was the macacques
slapping the squirrel. I could watch that on loop.

So what's planting my oaks? And why won't it plant hazels, chestnuts,
walnuts or pine nuts?

Somebody put me right on this please, but I thought Squirrels nibbled a bit 
off acorns to stop them germinating? Jays are better at acorn planting than 
squirrels?
