Pecan Trees: Grow some Southern Tradition

In the southern United States, no Thanksgiving dinner would be complete without a homemade pecan pie to top off the turkey and dressing

The pecan lends its flavor to world-famous New Orleans pralines, cookies, and ice creams and is even delicious right out of the shell due to its rich buttery flavor.

Due to its popularity, the pecan is one of the most recently domesticated major crops, even though Native Americans and colonists have considered them a delicacy since time immemorial.

The pecan tree is an excellent investment for anyone with some open ground and a love of the rich buttery nut

. After becoming established, a pecan tree can produce edible fruit for as much as three hundred years, guaranteeing that any planting will bring joy for many generations to come.

The tree itself is deciduous and may reach heights of up to almost 150 feet and spread up to 75 feet, providing valuable shade, scenic beauty, and large nuts.

Because the tree is native to much of the southern United States, landscapers and home gardeners can grow the tree with relative ease in these areas as it is acclimated to the climate and environment. The pecan flourishes where others falter and excel, providing shelter, shade, and food for the landscaper and native wildlife such as squirrels and birds. If you have an area where you need a tree or two, and you love pecan pie, consider the pecan as an investment in the future and natural beauty for today.
