A Mighty Oak Plus Mighty Growth
Why Sawtooth Oak Trees?
Want the majestic presence and shade coverage of an Oak, but don't want to wait 50 years? The Sawtooth Oak, an Asian Oak that has been grown in the U.S. since the mid 1800s, fills the bill! It grows at the pace of 2 to 3 feet a year, and can reach 30 feet in 15 years.
Its spreading habit creates a wide canopy of cooling shade. This fast-growing tree starts out with a pyramidal shape, but it matures to a broad, rounded canopy with dense leaves for effortless shade. New leaves emerge a bright yellow-green, darken to lustrous mid green in summer, and then turn rich gold and russet in the fall. They have distinctive toothed edges, inspiring the tree's common name.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Great healthy tree.
I purchased this tree less than a year ago to try to have some shade fast due to there not being any trees around my house. In less than a year it grew around 2-3 feet and is doing great!
Good experience. Showed when it was supposed to, in good health. Easy planting instructions, and after a few weeks, still looking great and healthy. Thanks for the good experience.
Tree arrived in excellent condition
Tree arrived on time and well packaged. Planted it the next day and within a couple of days all the leaves browned and fell off. Kept watering it every other day and 2 weeks later it is sprouting new leaves. Very happy with the tree so far and I can’t wait for it to establish it’s roots. I have ordered 6 trees from this site and all of them seem to be doing fine.
It has only ben a couple of weeks but it is looking very good even in the heat we have been having
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Your planting site should be made of loose, quality soil with plenty of sun. When you're ready to plant, dig your hole two times the width and the same depth as the root system of the tree. Position the tree into the hole and hold it straight as you begin to back fill. When refilling the hole with soil, be sure to completely cover your roots and tamp down the soil so there are no air pockets underground.
Cover the roots completely with soil but leave the stem above ground. Water the oak's planting site to settle the soil and then mulch to retain moisture.
2. Watering: During the first year, make sure your Sawtooth Oak Tree gets water during extended dry spells, particularly in the summer months. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil at a depth of 3 inches - if the soil is dry here, water your Sawtooth.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize conservatively. Organic fertilizer high in nitrogen works well. You can use a 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 fertilizer and follow label instructions.
