The Desirable is a favorite pecan tree because it is a regular and heavy pecan producer. Its pecans are a favorite because they are large, round, well-shaped, and abundantly filled with an excellent flavor. It yields an average of 44 nuts per pound. These characteristics, as well as its well-branched quality, make the Desirable Pecan tree a great pick for home or commercial planting. It's a Type-1 pollinator and should be pollinated with Type-Two pecan trees. At maturity, it can reach a height between 75-100 feet with a 50-75 foot spread. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. 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.
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.

The good and the bad
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us Marlene. It is reviews like yours that enable us to improve our practices and procedures. As your testimony states we have dug the trees even deeper (since your last order) to ensure we get as much of the tap root out of the ground as possible. As for the hair root comment (feeder roots), we follow the practice encouraged by the University of Georgia stating the trimming of the feeder roots actually stimulates faster growth and a healthier tree. You can read here if you would like more information: https://site.extension.uga.edu/pecan/2016/01/prune-pecan-trees-at-planting-for-better-results/ Also, our trees are warrantied at 50% purchase price unless you purchase the extended warranty. Please let us know if you would like any further information or assistance and again we thank you for your feedback.
