Hi.  A friend of mine has a magnificent 80+ foot White Oak tree in his
front yard.  Each year tons of acorns drop on the lawn requiring many
many hours of hard labor to pick them up.  As you'd might guess, they do
not rake easily.  He is getting up in years and this is a much more
formidable task than it was for him thirty years ago.

My question is --- Is there a way to prevent the mast crop from setting?
Or is there a method for limiting or reducing the number of acorns set
in the spring?  Any help would be appreciated!  Thank you
