These are some of our ongoing projects:

Pecan  Carya illinoinensis

Who does not love the state tree of Texas.  The Pecan can rise 120 feet in height and with a 75 foot canopy. This is quite an impressive tree. It will take a good amount of space to grow, so take that into consideration when planting Pecans.

Pecans are deciduous with a moderate growth rate and water needs. A fair amount of water will be needed to assist in getting a Pecan established if rain is not forthcoming. A positive is the Pecan can grow in salty soil or poor alkaline soils and even in poorly drained soils. It is an ideal tree for Parker County. A plus is the fruit or nuts that are available after a few years of growth. Again, a great tree if enough the property will support the size.
