    FWIW, McClain County has a pretty good OSU extension office. They’re in Purcell, south of the Chickasaw complex at Green and OK39. I forget the name of the street, but it’s the one that runs between Braum’s and McDonald’s and behind the Walmart. I think they’re just south of the McClain County Fairgrounds, but it has been a day out two since I’ve been over there.

    Me too, but the Golden Arches makes a pretty decent landmark.

    I have to correct this. I was down there this afternoon, and many of those oaks are a good 10-12ft tall.

    Your correct on the ID.

    Edit: I had to put in 600 trees to form a repairan buffer along 1/2 mile of creek that was eroding badly.
    The NRCS office had a home built tree planter that worked like a charm.
    Three point attachment that dug a furrow with a spade. Human tree planter sat on an old steel tractor seat on the implement with a bucket of bare root seedlings between their legs. Every 10’ you would put a seedling into a slot while holding on to it until the two semi horizontal tires on hubs in the back moved the dirt back into the trench and packed it lightly. Took one day to get those 600 trees planted in rows. Amazing piece of equipment.
    Sadly that was at the start of the three year drought. Almost none made it after the first year as the ground dried out and the creek went dry for the remainder of the drought.
    The ones that survived, (black locust) were constantly being used as rubs by the deer with their growth put back every fall as the deer tore them up.
    I sold that quarter not long after that so the buffer is no longer a concern of mine.
