Fruitscape™ with Pecan Trees

Experience the abundant rewards of Fruitscaping™ with our magnificent Pecan Trees. These impressive trees not only provide a majestic presence in your landscape but also offer a bountiful harvest of delicious, buttery pecans.

Pecan Trees are known for their stately appearance, featuring a tall, spreading canopy with beautiful feather-like foliage that provides ample shade during the hot summer months. In the fall, the leaves transform into a stunning display of warm hues, creating a picturesque landscape.

Beyond their ornamental value, Pecan Trees offer a delectable reward. They produce an abundance of pecans, renowned for their rich flavor and versatile use in both sweet and savory dishes. Whether enjoyed raw, roasted, or incorporated into your favorite recipes, pecans add a delightful crunch and nutty sweetness to your culinary creations.

Thriving in full sun, Pecan Trees prefer well-drained soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (pH 6.0-7.0). They require deep, fertile soil that retains moisture but drains well, allowing their extensive root systems to access nutrients and water effectively. Proper soil preparation and regular watering are key to ensuring healthy growth and abundant nut production.

Pecan Trees are long-lived and can provide generations of harvests when properly cared for. They are relatively low-maintenance trees but may benefit from occasional pruning to maintain a strong framework and promote optimal fruit production.

Embark on a Fruitscape™ adventure with Pecan Trees and savor the rewards of homegrown pecans. Whether you dream of creating delicious pecan pies, adding a nutty crunch to your salads, or simply enjoying the beauty of these majestic trees, Pecan Trees will be a cherished addition to your landscape and a source of culinary delight for years to come.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
