Fast Growing Shade Tree with Incredible Wildlife Appeal

The Sawtooth Oak, Quercus acutissima, is a deciduous shade tree with outstanding wildlife interest. Plant one where you’d like to enjoy some sumptuous shade, or where your yard’s critters are likely to benefit from both food and shelter.

Your Sawtooth Oak Tree is a fast growing, spreading shade tree that’s sure to impress you with its stately appearance, colorful fall display and generous acorn production. Sawtooth Oak Trees are renowned for their 6-inch, glossy leaves. The foliage has highly-serrated edges that emerge a delightful shade of yellow in the spring and provide excellent shade in summer.

The lovely vibrant green of summer transitions to hues of yellow/orange for autumn, providing a beautiful late season display for your yard. The leaves tend to brown and persist in winter, an added treat amid your other bare-branched, landscape trees.

Perhaps the best aspect of your Sawtooth Oak Tree is its benefit for your wildlife. It is a highly prized oak for wildlife enthusiasts because of the short time it takes for the tree to produce its adorable acorns…and it produces a more prolific harvest than most other Oak trees! Sawtooth Oak is also a valuable source of shelter for wildlife, so it’s a great way to bring your home closer in concert with nature.

Sawtooth Oak Trees will grow up to 60 feet tall with a 60 foot spread. It has a somewhat pyramidal form and spreading nature. It’s very fast growing, especially in its early years and highly productive of acorns. Sawtooth Oak Trees are a widely adaptive tree, able to thrive in a variety of conditions and is even cold hardy.

You’re sure to love your Sawtooth Oak Tree. It’s a tree you can plant and already enjoy in its first year. In fact, the Sawtooth Oak Tree is known to grow as much as six feet in one year! With its dense foliage, wildlife appeal and hardy nature, this is a tree you don’t want to miss out on.

Sawtooth Oak Tree Review by Sharon
I have 2 huge sawtooth oaks in my back yard & how I regret ever allowing these type of trees to grow in my yard. They started out as sticks and I had no way of knowing at the time what grief they would cause me in the future. I did not plant these trees they were planted when the house was built by the landscaping company. They are now 26 years old and produce tons of acorns each year , wormy type foliage in the springs and unbelievable amounts of leaves in the late fall to rake. These trees will work you to death! They are now growing over the top of the house and will cost me around $3,000.00 to have them cut down. They are perfect for forest trees but believe me they are now for a normal yard....keep in mind they are a great shade but when you consider all the work they cause you pick another type of oak that does not produce acorns.
doodlebug Review by Lois Smith
I have a sawtooth oak in my back yard which put out copious amounts of acorns this past fall. I never saw such gorgeous acorn caps...They have all these "sawtooth" marks on them. They are just beautiful!! I must have more of these beautiful trees!!
give back to mother nature Review by Harry O
I planted 440 saw tooth oak trees over the past 3 years. The 3 year olds have acorns this year. I fertilize 2 times a year. their 11 feet tall and growing faster than any tree i ever saw. One tree puts off enough oxygen for 4 people, so ill have enough oxygen for 1760 people. I love my trees.
Amazing tree Review by Paulie V
I planted one sawtooth in my front yard in March 06. For nearly three months I thought it was dead, since there had not been any sign of growth. It started about 26 inches in height. In July, the bloom began. It is still growing. It is more than 63 inches tall with a beautiful spread, and the base has doubled already. Can’t wait to see what next year brings. I will be ordering five more.
