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.” No really, 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. This particular seedling comes from a ‘gobbler’ selection
which we believe produces a heavier crop than the larger seeded strains. TREE SIZE UPON DELIVERY - RAPID MAST SEEDLING 10"+
