The Sawtooth Gobbler Oak Tree is a stately tree with a lush canopy. The botanical name is Quercus acutissima 'Gobbler’, named after the turkeys and other fowl that consume the tree’s small, soft acorns. Mature Sawtooth Gobbler Oak Trees stand 35 to 45 feet tall and wide. The leaves first emerge in the spring in a bright yellowish-green hue. The green lanceolate leaves have serrated edges that come to pronounced points, characteristic of all Sawtooth Oaks. By fall, the leaves transition into a faded green or brown. This Oak variety produces acorns at around six years of age. The acorns are small but incredibly abundant and ripen in the fall.

A central trunk or leader supports the rounded, pyramidal form. The Sawtooth Gobbler Oak Tree makes an excellent shade tree or accent in a landscape. Plant this Oak along a property line or road to add privacy during the spring, summer, and fall. Grow the Sawtooth Gobbler Oak Tree in zones 5 through 9.

Sawtooth Gobbler Oak Tree Care

The ideal location for Sawtooth Gobbler Oak Trees is one where it will receive full sun. Give the tree moist, well-drained soil with an acidic pH. Young trees need consistent moisture to settle in, but established plants are drought tolerant and can typically survive on rainfall alone.

Prune Oaks trees when they are dormant. Late winter to early spring is the best time to shape the tree and remove crossed branches. Winter pruning reduces the risk of disease and pest infestation.

Sawtooth Gobbler Oak Tree Spacing

Choose a planting area away from utility lines and other overhead obstructions. The Sawtooth Gobbler Oak Tree should be planted 20 feet away from buildings and roads. Space Gobbler Oaks 30 feet away from other trees. The dense canopy creates a partial shade environment that is good for various ground covers.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
