The Pawnee Pecan tree has a high yield potential for high quality nuts. The pecans ripen around October and their excellent kernel color and quality make them a great nut to have around the house (or in a pie!) for the holiday season. The nuts are large and thin shelled so they are easily crackable. The Pawnee Pecan is a medium sized tree and can reach a height of 30 feet with a width between 15-25 feet. It can be planted in full sun or partial shade and can tolerate a variety of soil types. Pawnee pecan is a Type 1. 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 (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.

Pecan Trees (Potted) - Pawnee (Type 1)

Great pecan trees

I ordered a pawnee and a kiowa pecan. They both arrived well packaged and full of life. I have transplanted them 2 weeks ago and they are both thriving. I highly recommend plant me green as your horticultural provider.

New packing system is so much better then the old way

The trees came in much better shape than usual. The new packing system is 100% better than the old way. using Fedex home is also a good idea. UPS is too rough on the packages. The only reason I did not give it five stars is I am waiting to see how the newly planted trees respond, there were quite a few branches broken that I had to trim off. I will be ordering more keep up the innovations in packing, every little bit helps the trees survive.

We really appreciate this review Joseph and know you have been with us a long time. You have seen the evolution of the many packaging types! We agree with you and really like the current system and carriers we have in place. We hope to hear how your trees are doing soon! Thank you, PMG

Excellent quality plants, package well, shipped right on time. I'm a bit concerned because th spring has been unusually cold and late, but I can't fault thie growers if these trees don't make it. If I order bare root trees again I'll probably pot them and hold until the weather is settled.
