I've started trying to grow a few sawtooths this year to add in around the farms to improve mast production for deer and duck hunting. This is my first try at doing any propagation and transplanting trees, but so far seems to be going pretty well. So far these seem to be progressing pretty well.

Anyone on here do much tree planting?

Seem to be. Right now my tallest ones are about 3' high. Pretty good for just under 3 months growth.

Yea I've been in the horticulture business for 7+ years. I grow overcups, cherry barks, whites, sawtooths, cow, chinquapin, pin, water, willow, and laurel oaks, just off the top of my head. Also grow chestnuts, pecans, and other ornamentals.

Do you sell the oaks? I'm going to do another couple dozen sawtooths next year but would also like to add in a few other varieties. Thinking about gobbler sawtooths, along with chinquapin and a few others...any suggestions?

Yea I grow nursery stock. My suggestion, OVERCUPS! Great for wetlands, they are some of the only trees still surviving in the flooded woods at swan creek because they keep them flooded too long. They can litterally grow in standing water for months on end. They have a special adaptation, like other swamp trees, that allows them to translocate oxygen through the wood into the root system. Water, pin, and willow oaks are also good for wetlands but the acorns mature earlier, are smaller, and they are not as hardy as the overcup. Not only does the overcup produce bigger acorns, but they produce a tap root in clay soils which the others will NOT! When you drive around after a tornado you see all the big trees with the giant soil pancake, thats because they don't grow a tap root in clay. Overcups do, they are all around the best oak to plant in my opinion. Wood ducks go nuts for those things, and they are pretty attractive to mallards as well. The sawtooths you have are nice trees, good in wetlands, grow fast, and produce a TON of acorns. Great for turkeys and ducks, but less attractive to the deer and squirrels because they are bitter. I've tasted the overcup acorns myself and they are not bad, but to a deer or a squirrel they are like candy.

1-2 year old volunteer sawtooth sprouts (about 2000+) help your self. They will be 24D or bush hog fodder next spring. I planted some trees on part of my property line back in 2000 and the number of acorns in unreal they produce every year.

The native overcups that have not been selectively grown in a horticulture operation don't produce heavy until, rough estimate 20 years. Selectively grown trees, like the ones I grow, will produce heavily in half that time.
