Pin oak acorns

I have a very large pin oak tree that is dropping acorns very frequently. Is there any place that buys acorns?

Tree seed "buyers" such as state and private tree nurseries, will buy clean and floated seed from trusted sellers or seed collectors. Tree seed buyers typically have minimum orders for tree seed, usually hundreds to thousands of pounds per species.

Seed collectors are usually able to collect all their seed for free, so I don't see you "selling" your pin oak acorns to anybody in the near future.
