Carya illinoinensis

Pecan

  • Provides food and cover for wildlife
  • Prefers moist soils
  • Height: 70-100 Feet
  • Spread: 40-75 Feet
  • Hardiness Zone: 5-9

Interesting Notes:

Native pecans, hickories and related varieties do not exhibit the vigorous top growth seen in other RPM varieties. They do, however, develop the dense root mass and always "catch up" with larger seedlings within a few years.
