Pecans need at least two trees for good pollination.

These are first year seedlings in the range of 1-2' tall.

There is no equivalent in nature to transplanting a tree, and it is preferable for the tree to be transplanted very small to promote root health.

These were grown in deeply prepared beds to minimize root loss when being lifted for shipment. 

 

Trees

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.

Self-Sufficiency

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.

With their delicious nuts and valuable ecosystem benefits, pecan trees are a smart choice for anyone looking to increase their self-sufficiency.

Wildlife Benefits

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.

 

Types of Seedlings

Seedling Pecan: Northern Pecan

Carya illinoinensis

Seed source: Burnt Ridge Nursery

Description: 

Thin shelled nuts with great flavor. They are smaller than those from cultivar trees but represent a wider set of genetics, and greater resilience to your planting, given the range of nut sizes and shapes.
These would be great for wildlife plantings, foraging, and home use as well.

 

Seedling Pecan: Seedling of Kanza

Carya illinoinensis

Seed source: Burnt Ridge Nursery

Description: 

The mother tree of these seedlings is a Kanza Pecan. They were open pollinated by unknown father tree. Speaking more to the known portion of the genetic lineage, 'Kanza' was primarily released for the northern pecan belt (Zone 6b) because of it superior cold hardiness and early harvest date.
These nuts will be more uniform in size and shape.
