Dan, how are your seedlings doing up there?

Thanks for the tips. I will have to check back on the PAGC nursery since they are not currently taking orders.

Back to the 'invasive' and attractiveness questions posed earlier. What experience have you had with either of these two items?
- Are they invasive?
- How well do wildlife, deer and turkey in particular, like them? How do they compare in attraction to red / white oaks?

I planted a few of them 2 years ago, so I can't tell you much yet. As to their attractiveness to deer you have to consider that a poor tasting (if they are poor tasting) acorn in 3-5 years is bettter than a yummy one in 20-30 years.

What other experience has there been with the 'invasive'-ness and / or attractability of the sawtooths?

I planted 50 this past spring so they've been in the ground nearly a year. When planted, they were 3-4 ft. I put them in blue-x shelters and most are now in the 6-7 ft range. They are growing incredibly quick. This past summer was pretty dry too. I can't imagine what they will do if we have a wet summer.

Re: Invasiveness - I spoke with the local County Forester and he indicated that although the Sawtooth is not native, it has not been found to be "invasive"in our area (in NW PA). He has not seenany indication that it would be a problem to plant.

He alsorecommended an English oak as an alternative to the white / red oaks in our area. They produce large, less bitter acrons in as little as 10 years.
