Sawtooth Oak is a rapid-growing tree. It begins to bear in 4-6 years and is a very productive acorn crop that is excellent for deer and wildlife. Bears up to 100 lbs/tree at maturity. It has been widely planted because of its prolific and early bearing for an oak tree. Adapted to a variety of soil conditions. Best when planted with another oak for nut production. New trees can produce fruit in 4-6 years depending on care and climate. The success of new trees is heavily dependent on the care received during and after planting.

|Pruning||Oaks require minimal pruning. In early years, light pruning may be used to establish a strong central leader structure.|
|Fertilization||Do not fertilize at planting. Once the trees are established, fertilize in early spring (Mar-April) as growth begins. Do not fertilize in the fall, which could promote late season tender growth that can be damaged by early frosts.|
|Watering||Newly planted trees should be watered regularly. This is the most critical step in the establishment of your new trees. Please see the Watering section under "How to plant and grow" in our Learning Center.|
