    Default sawtooth oak trees

    Anyone have any experience with these trees? Does anyone in Nebraska sell these? Looking to make this my planting for Arbor Day this year.

    The Arbor Day foundation sell them.

    The ADF will begin shipping trees to hardiness zone 5 in mid-April, most likely. The Sawtooth Oaks 'Quercus accutissima' are 2-3 feet tall and shipped dormant and bare root.

    The Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, located on East Campus, sells this tree as well. Might be bigger and likely potted, but their website doesn't have these details.
