About Cold Hardy Sawtooth:
Cold Hardy Sawtooth Oak Original seed source from North Korea meaning this Sawtooth is” not from the south” and is fully cold hardy to zone 4. Sawtooths from the south have been planted here in the North for years with little if any success but this is truly a cold hardy strain that will. Our trees survived 2013 Polar Vortex temperatures of 30 below zero. Sawtooths are known for their abundant acorn production because they will produce acorns the full length of their branches and not just on the ends. 500 to 1,000 pounds of acorns are not uncommon. One of the best attributes of this cold hardy Sawtooth is not only heavy acorn production but that they retain their leaves most of the winter, Fabulous for tree stands!
