Sawtooth Oak

Quercus acutissima

The Sawtooth is one of the fastest-growing oaks and has a relatively dense habit. The leaves open as brilliant yellow-green in spring, changing to a lustrous green foliage in summer and then a pale brown in fall. These leaves hold on during the winter. It’s a great choice for this area since it is resistant to insects and diseases.

This is a nice, wide-spreading shade or lawn tree, which will withstand temperatures to -20 degrees Fahrenheit once it is established. It is easily transplanted.
