Medium to Fast
Sawtooth oaks produce acorns at a very young age, providing food for many kinds of wildlife, especially wild turkeys.
The native habitat of the sawtooth oak tree is Japan, Korea, China, and the Himalayan Mountain range. The tree was introduced to America in 1862. This oak probably derives its name from the distinctive sawtooth-edged leaves it produces.
