Sawtooth Oak (Quercus accutisima)
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.

Sawtooth Oaks arrived quickly and the roots were moist when they arrived. They all seemed to be good specimens. Straight and healthy looking. I got them planted the next day and installed some tree protectors. Time will tell.
Trees arrived alive and in excellent shape, you guys care about handling your products correctly that puts you in a league of your own, I won't consider any other company, I want live trees that have had their roots protected during shipment and that's what you all provide, you are the best.
purchased 50 sawtooths two yrs ago. arrived in great shape. most are doing quite well despite poor clay soils. some over 6 ft tall now. some died due to areas too wet but thats expected. VERY HAPPY WITH TREES FRM Nativ. BEST VALUE AND QUALITY
First time buying seedlings and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Man was i surprised when I opened the box. Every tree looked healthy. I’ve ordered twice now and a third order is on its way. Here is an example of a sawtooth planted a few weeks ago from nativ. This tree really looked good so I planted right along my drive where the deer like to hang out in the evenings.
Trees showed up and grew. Good product.
