Pecan trees are a great choice for anyone looking to grow their own food. These North American native trees are known for their large, delicious, thin-shelled nuts, which have a rich, buttery flavor. There's nothing quite like the taste of a freshly harvested pecan, which is often superior to store-bought varieties. 

Pecan trees are large and long-lived, with the potential to reach heights of up to 100 feet and spreads of 50-80 feet. They have a pyramid-shaped crown and large, pinnately compound leaves that turn a brilliant yellow in the fall. Their smooth bark ranges in color from light gray to dark brown. These trees have the potential to produce prodigious amounts of food, making them a valuable addition to any homestead, farm, garden, or community.

In addition to their food production value, pecan trees also provide excellent benefits for wildlife. Their nuts are a valuable food source for a variety of animals, and their large canopy can provide shade and shelter. Pecan trees are also relatively easy to care for and can tolerate a wide range of soil types, although they do prefer well-draining soil and do best in full sun.

If you're interested in growing your own food, consider adding a pecan tree to your homestead or garden. With their delicious nuts and valuable ecosystem benefits, pecan trees are a smart choice for anyone looking to increase their self-sufficiency.

These are first year seedlings in the range of 1' tall. They are grown in specialty nursery boxes to encourage healthy root development and transplanted while small for long term health of root structure. All seedlings are shipped dormant as bare roots.
