FRANKFORT, Ky. - Oaks are the most important tree species to wildlife in Kentucky forests, but the impact of this years drought remains to be seen. White oaks are faring better than red oaks so far.
White oaks produce acorns that are a critical food source for squirrels, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, black bear and many non-game species. White oak acorns are preferred by wildlife because they are more palatable. Acorns produced by red oaks contain tannin, which makes them bitter.
