It is also visually appealing with its upright growth and semi-open canopy. Sumner is a Type-2 pollinator and should be pollinated with Type-One pecan trees. Pecan trees should be planted in full sun or partial shade. The soil should be deep, moist, and well-drained. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet.

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

Pecan trees need water and sun in order to thrive. Be sure to plant in deep, moist, and well-drained soil. During the tree's first growing season, be sure to water regularly, about a gallon of water a day, (though you do not need to water every day in order to accomplish this). Prune pecan trees in the winter, making sure to prune lower hanging branches to encourage upward and lateral growth.

Wonderful Nut Trees

Recieved two pecan trees from Plant Me Green.
They came fast and well packed.
Great size and healthy as well, unlike some other companies.
Would order again.

Pecan Trees

Very responsive. Trees arrived to my nephew earlier than I expected. When there was a delivery mix up the Plant Me Green resolved it. I have a happy nephew for his birthday.

Sumner Pecan Tree

The dormant tree arrived in wonderful packaging! Unpacked the tree from the shipping carton, took the tree from the container and am immediately concerned with the tight circled roots. Instead of planting the root bound tree in the ground, I have planted the tree in a fifteen gallon fabric pot, with a quality potting medium, and hopefully giving the trees' roots a little grow room will encourage enough new growth for successful placement in my yard in about a year.
