Customers often ask us… “How come you call yourselves the Nativ Nursery, and offer the non-native sawtooth oak?”  Our answer is…  “It’s native somewhere.”  Sawtooth oak has been an American citizen for quite some time, and proves itself a winner in our book as the first to provide hard mast for all walks of wildlife.  Acorns rain down annually, at a critical time when other oaks haven’t even thought of shedding.  Sawtooths are so productive that we can fill the back of a pickup with acorns from three trees!    Trail camera folks and early season bow hunters should all agree that sawtooth oak is a winner.  Plant a few groves near the cabin or close to your property’s perimeter for a low impact, easy access, and early season “sure thing” hunting spot.  Acorns drop from mid-September to mid-October and as early as year six from seed on better sites, but we’ve seen them produce younger than that.
