Fall Season our trees are not yet dormant. As such, we ship the plants in containers.
Fall shipping season will be coming to an end in mid November.
We do not recommend fall plantings for USDA plant zone 5.
If you are planting in USDA Zone 6 or 7 for this fall season your window for a successful acclimation from our warm plant zone of 8b in Florida to zone 6. We recommend a Spring order or planting, for zone 6 & 7 this late in the planting season.
Due to high demand of our trees an order placed today will not ship out until a few weeks.
Ideally it would be best to plant young trees coming from Florida in late September for plant zones 6 and in October for plant zones 7.
You will want to protect your young trees from any frosts and freezes or delay shipping to our spring bareroot/dormant season.

Sawtooth Gobbler oak is an attractive, large, deciduous tree, 50 feet in height or taller with a rounded, broad, pyramidal shape. New spring leaves are an attractive bright yellow-green, and fall color varies from dull yellow to brown. It is a vigorous-growing tree that produces acorns at age 6 or slightly before. The acorns of sawtooth Gobbler oak are smaller than the regular Sawtooth Oak (½-inch long) and are produced in large quantities in the fall. They are quite popular with wildlife. Sawtooth oak prefers a well-drained, acid soil but will adapt to most soils except highly alkaline. Trees grow best in well-drained soil in the full sun. Irrigation helps trees become established, but ,once established, they grow very fast without irrigation. Cold hardy to USDA plant zones 5-9.
