Gobbler Sawtooth Oak
Fast Growing Oak with Wildlife Appeal
The Gobbler Sawtooth Oak is a deciduous shade tree valued for its wildlife appeal. It would be a good choice as a medium shade tree for your yard, or in a location where area wildlife could take advantage of its benefits.
Your Gobbler Sawtooth Oak is one of the fastest growing of the Oak trees. It can grow to 50 feet and has a 60 foot broad, rounded crown.
The seven inch glossy, dark green leaves are lance-shaped and fill the tree out nicely. The bark is grey-black and forms attractive ridges as the tree ages.
Spring brings yellow flowers on catkins that aren’t really noticeable to you, but will peak the interest of your yard’s bees and butterflies.
When fall arrives, the foliage will turn a yellow-brown that provides a more subtle backdrop for the showier foliage colors in your yard.
Gobbler Sawtooth Oaks are often grown for their appeal to wildlife, so you’ll love the acorns that your tree produces in abundance. You’ll also love how the Sawtooth produces acorns sooner than other Oak trees.
The acorns are even quite decorative. The one inch acorns have a scaly cap and can be used in a variety of craft projects.
The Gobbler Sawtooth is drought, heat and humidity tolerant, pest resistant and generally considered a low maintenance tree.
Do something nice for both yourself and the environment by planting one of these amazing trees.
