Acorns

Description:

Acorns, or oak nuts, are the fruit of the oak tree. They usually contain a single seed from which a new oak tree can grow. Falling to the ground is an integral part in the lifecycle of an oak. From the ground, it can grow into a new plant or the acorn can be consumed by wildlife, such as birds and small mammals, and be dispersed in another area.
