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.” In addition, Sawtooth Oaks don't really perfectly fit into the "red oak" or "white oak" category exclusively, so we decided to put it into both! 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.
