Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!
**Dormancy Note - This plant is currently dormant for the winter! It is available for purchase! Your delivered plant may be dormant, or showing very little top growth. However, you can still plant! These plants are putting all their energy into root production, so they will be ready to thrive in the spring! If you have any issues with your plant the following peak season, you can fill out our return request form to request a replacement plant.

  1. The Sawtooth Oak is a medium to large-sized tree that can reach heights of 40 to 60 feet (12 to 18 meters) with a spread of 40 to 60 feet (12 to 18 meters). It has a rounded crown and distinctive leaves with serrated edges, resembling saw teeth. The leaves are dark green and turn yellow-brown in the fall.

  2. Growing Conditions: Sawtooth Oaks thrive in full sun and can tolerate a wide range of soil types, including sandy, loamy, and clay soils. They are known for their adaptability to various growing conditions and can tolerate both wet and dry soils. They are hardy in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9.

  3. Maintenance: Once established, Sawtooth Oaks are relatively low-maintenance. They are drought-tolerant and require minimal watering, except during prolonged dry periods. Pruning is generally not necessary, but you can remove any dead or damaged branches as needed. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain moisture and suppress weeds.
