Pecan trees are native to much of the USA and are very long-living trees, living hundreds of years. They grow the most nuts when you have two or more within a few hundred feet of each other. The science plant name for the native pecan tree is Carya illinoinensis. It grows in zones 5-9 and can grow to be very large. Open-grown pecan trees have massive trunks and oval or rounded wide-spreading crowns of branches that extend far down the trunk. Forest trees have straight trunks and compact, pyramidal crowns. It bears within 6-10 years of planting. This native pecan tree will continue to produce loads of nuts even as it gets older, once it matures and starts producing as a mature pecan tree, you can get 70 to 150 pounds of pecans from a single pecan tree. The crops of sweet pecan nuts are abundant and continue regardless of age. These also make great large shade trees that are strong. The wood can be harvested once the tree gets to mature size for valuable lumber. Pecan trees can produce nuts with a single tree but typically have much larger crops of pecan nuts when two or more pecan trees are planted within 100ft of each other. You want unrelated pecan trees that have similar bloom times. Our pecan trees are grown from seed and are rarely related to each other. It is best to plant as many pecan trees from multiple different sources as possible to increase your pollination chances in the future.
To follow your state regulations, we can not ship this plant to CA, AZ, ID, MT, NE, NV, OR, TX, UT, WA, HI

All of our trees ship Bareroot which means they will ship with no soil and no pot. This allows the plants to have a safer trip through the mail as well as to cut down on shipping costs majorly. The roots will be carefully removed from the pot they are growing in, and then wrapped in moist material with the roots sealed up to keep them moist during transit.
