Oak seedlings in my lawn


My front lawn is under a giant oak (neighbor's tree). Last fall we had tons of acorns, and this spring my lawn is full of seedlings. I keep mowing them down and they keep popping up.

Will they eventually stop coming up if I keep mowing? Or can anyone suggest another method for making them go away (short of hand-weeding)? Thanks.

Just mow them--that should do the job.

We get the same with maple seedlings. Our neighbor picks them and sells them on Ebay. She gets about $10 for 25...

You and me both! I've got some walnut and wild cherry floating around too.

Not more than 2-3" tall. We thought of doing it too. She sells a lot online from the back yard and woods. Holly does well too.
