The Sawtooth Oak has a beautiful elongated leaf showing character and dimension. In the Spring, the leaves are yellow, then they darken to a rich green and finish up to a pretty brown color. It is considered a "fast growing oak tree" and can sprout acorns as early as 5 years young.
If you enjoy feeding the wildlife, this is the way to go. Your tree will arrive with 2" to 2.5" caliper trunk.
The Northern Red Oak is a fast growing oak tree. The colorful leaves start out in the Spring as a light pink/red, then mature to the traditional green leaf with a spectacular russet-red finish in the Fall. The Northern Red Oak can eventually grow to 100+ feet tall with a 3 foot diameter. Make sure you plan ahead!
While the American Chestnut is almost extinct, its close cousin, the Chestnut Oak, is a great alternative. It is not susceptible to the blight. It has a very thick grayish/brown bark and leaves almost 8" long. Easily found on ridges, it is similar to the Swamp Chestnut and Chinkapin Oak. It can grow up to 60 feet with a 50 foot spread and prefers well drained soil, yet it can hold its own on rocky, poor soils.
