The Sawtooth Oak (Quercus acutissima) is a durable tree that offers longevity—quickly maturing to a height of 60 feet. This Oak is grown in USDA zones 5 through 9. The sawtooth prefers well-drained soil and lots of sun. The oak can produce its first crop of acorns in the fifth to sixth growing season. Acorns fall from the middle of September to mid-October. The bitter acorn makes it slightly more desirable to wildlife. The oak’s lustrous green leaves change gracefully in the fall to clear yellow or golden brown. The edges have a zigzag shape, which give the tree its name.

The best time of year to plant your trees varies depending on what zone you are in. However, for most zones the best time to plant is between fall and early spring. Planting your trees in the fall allows the trees to root into ground before the dormant season. When planting trees,the hole needs to be twice as wide as, but not deeper than the rootball. The soil should be level with the top of the rootball.
