Pecan news and Events

Pruning your pecan tree(s) is a necessary and on-going chore that begins with the initial planting of your tree. Pecan trees are 'lazy' trees and will grow into gigantic 'pecan bushes' if annual pruning is not performed. The goals you seek to achieve in pruning are to encourage upward growth, lateral growth that will allow your tree full advantage to sunlight, and improved tree management. You also want your trees to well...look nice?

Suckers (small branches) growing along the trunk) will rapidly grow into unmanageable limbs, while growth in the upper areas of the tree will stall. It take less energy, water, and nutrients to promote growth lower on the trunk, thus if lower branches are allowed to remain, the pecan tree will be content just being an unsightly and unmanageable 'bush.'
