Maybe they want to do the same as Nelson & Collingwood 200 years ago.
Nelson ordered oak trees to be planted in the Forest of Dean & Collingwood always carried acorns to spread around the countryside.
Neither could conceive of a British Navy of any but oak ships & were ensuring a supply for the future.
HMS Victory needs repairs this year & they will be using 2 of the trees Nelson ordered.
Trev, I might have an answer to the quantity required by that person. Being a 'Dog' I've got a fairly reliable nose, so, I looked at the contact email address of the person requesting that amount of acorns and part of the address is Milltex, quick look on google reveals that name as manufacturers of blinds etc, acorns are used on the end of some blind strings....I might be wrong though :wink:
