Perhaps you might like to consider planting a mixture, including a mast
producing species, like one of the oaks, rather than all one species?
Contact a professional forester in your area for a planting recommendation.
The hardwood mast producers are somewhat more difficult to establish, but
well worth the effort IMHO.
Good luck, and fortunate weather!
