Which oak trees are genetically poor acorn producers?

Hi Steve:

That is a very difficult question to answer as poor acorn producers are usually identified by a forester, woodland owner, or a homeowner. There are no known oak species, to my knowledge, that are recognized as "poor acorn producers."

Best of luck!
