The Sawtooth Oak tree, Quercus acutissima, is the fastest growing wildlife Oak tree, sometimes growing acorns at the age of five years. Many wildlife animals and game birds visit the Sawtooth Oak tree when the acorns begin ripening and covering the ground. The appetites of deer, turkey and squirrel seemingly are unsatisfiable. Not only are sawtooth Oaks excellent for wildlife grazing, but the trees form a dense canopy of 6 inch long, toothed leaves that are just right to use as a privacy barrier when planted in long thick rows.
• Most Sawtooth Oak trees planted in the United States are used primarily for wildlife food provision, mostly due because the species bears heavier crops of acorns than do most other Oak tree varieties. Additionally the extra bitterness of this acorn makes it slightly more desirable to wildlife animals. The Sawtooth Oak Tree has become one of the most popular fast growing trees in America, and a homeowner can expect the tree to grow as much as 6 feet in one year. The Sawtooth Oak Tree rapidly can grow to 50 feet and is best known for its rapid production of acorns, sometimes producing a few acorns after only 5 years from planting. The Sawtooth tree acorns are a favorite wildlife food for feeding deer, squirrels, game birds and many other wildlife animals. Not only is the Sawtooth Oak tree planted as a shade tree around the home to reduce electricity cost for cooling your house, but this tree is lined out in urban streets to shade and to cool city streets and to provide a safe nesting place for squirrels and songbirds. The dense leaves of the sawtooth oak tree absorb the irritating gasoline and diesel fumes from automobiles and trucks exhaust pipes very successfully along city streets.
• The Sawtooth Oak tree is very cold hardy and can grow in cold winters of 10 degrees below zero, and is found growing and is widespread from Michigan to Florida. Wildlife plantation owners in the South plant rows of Sawtooth Oak trees to feed and attract wildlife animals, and a 10 year old Sawtooth oak tree can produce as much as 80 pounds of acorns each year.
