    Every once in a while, all the oaks or spruces or other plants in a region suddenly produce a tremendous bounty of seeds - up to 100 times more than usual. But why do they do it, and how do they all manage to sync up?

    Mast Year: A year in which all the plants of a particular species in a region ramp up their seed production.
    Predator Satiation Hypothesis: The hypothesis that mast seeding is a strategy plants use for controlling the population of squirrels and other seed-eating animals.

It is possible they "talk" to each other. Symbiotic relationships between trees and fungi (fungi are the largest single living organisms on earth) could provide chemical queues to the whole forrest.

I like how the last graph shows an increase in the squirrel population and then a die-off. Economics has the same root as ecology.

Why don't the trees just not produce any acorns at all on most years and then only produce acorns once a few years?

Read a book on trees, apparently they are able to communicate through intricate root systems and also send signals with underground fungi. Some times they produce lots of nuts because they are dying, spending the last energy to reproduce.

Don't hate on the squirrels! They are just squirreling away the oak seeds to other places than directly under the oak tree, where a new tree has a small chance of growing up. Squirrels are burying the acorns away from the oppressing shade of the parents. They are burying way more acorns than they will dig back up for a winter snack and play therefore an important role in planting new oaks.
