I have an oak in my back yard, it’s about 20 feet tall. This tree has never produced a single acorn…until this year. The acorn shown looks huge about the size of a [half dollar] and it’s the only one on the entire tree. Can you explain what it is for sure and if this is normal occurance in the life of an oak. Never seen a bigger acorn and never just a single one. Thanks
