How to Plant
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 - Oconee (Type 1)
Trees arrived in great shape and are growing!
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.
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
