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.

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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Very satisfied with this tree! Quality is great. Tree arrived packaged really well! Hope to buy more from FastGrowingTrees.com
They arrived in pristine shape! So well packed! I was anxious to see how trees that tall would be packed and arrive without damage. I planted them within a few days and they are happily adjusting to their new home. Can't wait to watch them grow quickly and shade my hosta bed. I also received a Chaste tree in the same order. It is healthy, beautiful and so well branched out! I can't wait until Spring to watch its progression of flowers and panicles! Thank you for taking such care with your shipping techniques. I think your prices are very reasonable too!
Tree arrived in great condition and appears to be taking root fast.
I love the fact that when you buy a tree and it’s been damaged they go to work to make sure you get what you paid for. The tree is beautiful and vibrant and a beautiful and perfect addition to my yard.
Bought 4 trees and wanted fast growing. Heard wonderful reviews from a friend who’s husband was growing them to sell. He passed away . I had bought some from her and needed 4 more to finish driveway at ranch (1/4 mile) to house. Trees came wonderful shape, healthy and quickly. Over 5 ft tall starting. Will definitely send update pictures. Very pleased. I loved them being shipped in burlap, so easy to plant.
