Sawtooth Gobbler oak is an attractive, large, deciduous tree, 50 feet in height or taller with a rounded, broad, pyramidal shape. New spring leaves are an attractive bright yellow-green, and fall color varies from dull yellow to brown. It is a vigorous-growing tree that produces acorns at age 15 or slightly before. The acorns of sawtooth Gobbler oak are smaller than the regular Sawtooth Oak (½-inch long) and are produced in large quantities in the fall. They are quite popular with wildlife. Sawtooth oak prefers a well-drained, acid soil but will adapt to most soils except highly alkaline. Trees grow best in well-drained soil in the full sun. Irrigation helps trees become established, but ,once established, they grow very fast without irrigation.

Pruning Oaks require minimal pruning. In early years, light pruning may be used to establish a strong central leader structure.
Fertilization Do not fertilize at planting. Once the trees are established, fertilize in early spring (Mar-April) as growth begins. Do not fertilize in the fall, which could promote late season tender growth that can be damaged by early frosts.
Watering Newly planted trees should be watered regularly. This is the most critical step in the establishment of your new trees. Please see the Watering section under "How to plant and grow" in our Learning Center.
