Product Description

Quercus acutissima 

Quercus acutissima, commonly known as the sawtooth oak or Japanese evergreen oak, is a deciduous tree native to East Asia, including China, Korea, and Japan. It belongs to the Fagaceae family and is characterized by its distinctive serrated leaves, which give it the "sawtooth" appearance. The foliage is dark green and turns shades of yellow or brown in the fall. Sawtooth oak produces small acorns that are a valuable food source for wildlife.

Cultivation Tips: Here are some tips for cultivating Quercus acutissima:

  1. Location: Plant sawtooth oak in a location that receives full sun to partial shade. It prefers well-drained soil but can tolerate various soil types, including loam, clay, or sandy soil.

  2. Watering: Provide regular watering, especially during periods of drought, to help establish a strong root system. Once established, sawtooth oak is moderately drought-tolerant and requires less frequent watering.

  3. Pruning: Minimal pruning is typically required for sawtooth oak. Remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches to maintain a healthy structure and shape.

  4. Fertilization: Apply a balanced fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates.

  5. Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to conserve soil moisture, suppress weed growth, and regulate soil temperature. Leave space between the mulch and the trunk to prevent moisture-related issues.

  6. Pest and Disease Management: Monitor the tree for common pests and diseases, such as oak wilt and powdery mildew. Treat any infestations promptly with appropriate insecticides or fungicides.

  7. Protection from Winter Damage: In regions with harsh winters, protect young sawtooth oak trees from frost damage by wrapping the trunk with burlap or using tree guards.

By following these cultivation tips, you can successfully grow and maintain Quercus acutissima in your landscape, enjoying its beauty and benefits for years to come.
