The Elliot is a prolific pecan tree, yielding an abundance (around 82 per pound) of excellent quality, flavorful pecans. The nuts are thin shelled with a plump kernel. The Elliot is also scab resistant. It is a Type-2, or protogynous, pollinator, meaning that its stigma is receptive prior to pollen shedding. Because of this, the Elliot should be pollinated with Type-One pecan trees. The Elliot is hardy in Zones 6-9 and can be planted in full sun or partial shade. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. Plant in deep, moist, and well-drained soil. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9

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.

Expedient shipping! Great condition!

I was going to be out of town when my trees would have normally shipped, so I just put a note of the comment section of the dates I was unavailable, I received an email after I got back in town two days later notifying me that my trees were being shipped! Perfect timing, and I know it was no coincidence! Thanks for two successful orders in the last year!

Exellent

Would recomend them. I ordered 24 trees and only recieved 20 so I contacted them and immediately got a response explaining about the possibility of Fed ex having separated the shipment which turned out to be the case.
Fed ex did separate the shipment. They responded right away and I recieved all 24 trees well packed and moist. Will order from them again
