The Oconee Pecan tree has good yield potential, yielding about 48 nuts per pound. The nuts are large and elliptical and grow in clusters. Best of all, the nuts are easily crackable so you can quickly get to the tasty goodness. The Oconee is moderately scab resistant and is hardy in Zones 6-10. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. It is a Type-1 pollinator and should be pollinated with Type-Two pecan trees. Pecan Trees can be planted in full sun or partial shade as long as they are in deep, moist, well-drained soil. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10

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.

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.

Great service more than satisfied

Ordered 10 trees all of the same kind. Two trees came on one day an the other eight came a day later. I planted all the trees on days they arrived. Two of the trees that arrived on the second wave of shipments was in poor shape with the leaves wilting. Don’t know if they will make it but the other eight are in excellent shape taking water twice a day.

unknown status

the leaves on the tree start dying, don"t know if this tree will spout new leaves or not. The shipping company keeps shipment too long instead of delivering the live plants
