Sawtooth Oak

Tree Description:

95-10    Sawtooth oak (Quercus acutissima) is a common Asian species related to the emperor oak. It is planted for its acorn production in some southern US wildlife management areas, and elsewhere as an ornamental shade tree. This specimen came from seed of a hardy northern source being grown at the Morton Arboretum (#463-55). Sawtooth oak will not cross with North American oaks, so any volunteer seedlings found here will not be hybrids.
