Sawtooth Oaks

I planted sawtooth oaks in 2005 at the end of several of my food plots. I planted the tree's 18 feet apart. They have not produced any acorns yet.

I put 4 ft Tubex tree tubes over the tree's when they were planted. The tubes were purchased from Forestry Suppliers in Jackson. The sawtooth's all grew out of the top of the tubes the first year. The tubes protect the young trees from the browsing of deer.

I fertilize with 13-13-13 and spray a band around the base of the trees with glyphosate to kill the grass and weed competition in the spring.
