Pecan trees are great shade tress, they have deep roots and as a bonus
you get great tasting trests. Stuart trees are the predomint variety in
the large commercial groves. Desirable is a good variety as well. I recommend both varieties.
When purchasing pecan trees always get a grafted pecan tree. Seed
grown pecan trees rarely produce pecans as good as the original pecan
tree.I prefer smaller pecan trees since pecan trees have a deep
tap root and transplant shock is much greater for large pecan trees.
