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. 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 a straight trunk and compact, pyramidal crowns. It bears within 6-10 years of planting. The crops of sweet nuts are abundant and contine 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 so they would not be related to each other. You can have two of these trees, or you could purchase a grafted tree elsewhere and one of these seed grown ones. Make sure to ask the other company is the pecan trees they sale that are grafted can pollinate with seedling hardy pecan trees.
