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.
The Lakota pecan trees were shipped quickly and were well packaged. We planted the next day, just in time for some good autumn rains. We are looking forward to pecan pies!
I was expecting a smaller tree than what we received, was very pleasantly surprised with the tree we got. Very healthy and good size, thank you!
I ordered these Pecan trees for my Daughter-In-Law and Son as a housewarming gift and asked for them to be sent to them in Oklahoma. They arrived expediently and in very good shape. They were, and I am very impressed.
I ordered a Lakota pecan tree. Unfortunately FedEx screwed up the shipping. I contacted the company and Olivia got me another tree shipped right away.
This tree arrived a few days later and was secured in a box and healthy and beautiful. You truly can't beat their prices either. I will definitely be ordering from them again.
Super large, healthy, and adapting well to Virginia
