The Ellis is a Type-2 pollinator and should be pollinated with Type-One pecan trees. Harvest date is mid to late October around the same time as Desirable, Oconee, and Elliot.

Bare root orders only: Bare root trees have to be dormant in order to be shipped. We will begin shipping directly after they are harvested. If everything goes according to schedule, bare root shipping will begin the last week in January.

We currently cannot ship to the following states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or US territories. We cannot ship trees internationally.

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.

Pecan Trees

Trees were very well packaged and arrived in good shape...about 4 days shipping time. Had good root system and looked healthy. Would have preferred a bare root Amling as the potted version was a bit expensive ($59), but that was all that was available at the time. Overall, a good experience and I would certainly buy from them again.

Pecan Tree Received in Great Condition

My tree was received well packaged and had a large amount of paper around the roots to keep them moist during transit. The tree seems to be doing well as it's starting to sprout foliage. Time will tell how well it does.
