Sawtooth Oak

The Sawtooth Oak tree, Quercus acutissima, is a wide spreading shade or lawn tree. This deciduous tree is a great source for wildlife food because it begins to produce acorns in its sixth year in the nursery.

It is a highly prized oak for wildlife enthusiasts because of the short time it takes for the tree to produce acorns.

Sawtooth Oak trees have moderate water requirements and it has a moderate tolerance to salt and alkali soils.

The leaves go from yellow to golden brown in the fall, and open to a brilliant golden yellow in the spring. Its growth rate is rapid for an oak tree, and it is a fast growing shade tree.

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 ferterlize 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 startef about 26 inches in height. In July, the bloom began. It is still growing. It is more than 63 inches tall with a beautifull spread, and the base has doubled already. Cant wait to see what next year brings. I will be oredering five more.
