The Ellis Pecan tree is a new patented cultivar from Georgia. It yields approximately 43 nuts per pound with a 57% kernel. The nuts are large, oblong to slightly obovate in shape with excellent quality and good scab resistance. The tree has an upright growth habit and can reach a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. 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. USDA ZONES: 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.

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.

Good people to work with

If these sprout true to form, then it’s a 5 star purchase. Ordered 30, needed 32, my miscount. Were able to get these two within a week. Packaged well, a couple were sparse on feeder roots, but that’s normal with bare root. Trees appeared dug fresh. Time will tell if they all sprout and live. Planted in moist holes and should complete drip this week. Ashley, I think she said her name was, was very kind voiced, and was helpful

I can't say at this point. Trees look good. I will tell you if they hold up after a year.

Ellis pecan trees

The trees were in very good shape. I got them all in the ground the day I received them. I ordered one 4x4 potted tree as well just to see the difference. The tap root was shaped like a big hook pointing upward to the sky. So I cut the hook part off and planted it with a very short tap root. But, I think that was the best choice. I added ecto fungi with each tree. I believe all the trees are alive and doing well. Springtime will tell the story.

I doubt I will ever order a potted tree again. You are asking for messed up roots and paying extra for it. Doesn't make sense for me to go that route again. But the bare root trees were just fine.
