The Sumner Pecan tree is an excellent choice for a home or orchard. It has a high quality yield and is noted for its disease resistance. It is also visually appealing with its upright growth and semi-open canopy. It is a Type-2 pollinator and should be pollinated with Type-One pecan trees. It is hardy in Zones 6-10 and 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. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10
Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery. Packages are typically shipped within 7-10 business days from the time of your order. You will receive a tracking email upon shipment of your Plant Me Green purchase. Delivery time cannot be guaranteed. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.

ATTENTION: If your order contains both bare root and potted plants, your order will ship AFTER the bare root trees are harvested.

If your order only contains potted trees it will ship within the 7-10 business day window. If your order only contains bare root trees, it will ship in the order it was received, after the tree harvest. Thank you!

First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. 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. 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. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
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.
