The sawtooth oak is an attractive and durable shade tree that adapts to a wide range of soil and climate conditions. The leaves add to the visual interest — opening a brilliant yellow to golden yellow color in the spring, turning dark lustrous green in summer and yellow to golden brown in the fall. Its wide-spreading habit also provides great shade.

Wildlife Value

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.
