Lakota is a Type 2 pollinator that bears in 6-7 years and ripens in late September, 2 weeks after Pawnee. Best pollinators: Pawnee or Mandan. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

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.

Beautiful trees and great customer service

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.
