Why plant Pawnee Pecan Treeling?

An early producer with hearty pecans? Pawnee is the pecan with that criteria. You'll be pleasantly surprised when you walk in your orchard to see pecans ripe and ready for picking up to 3 weeks before the other pecans are ready. What's more? Pawnee nuts have been known to have the largest amount of useable kernels, which can mean a lot of pecan pies!

The mighty Pecan is an American tree that has nourished both humans and wildlife here for thousands of years. It’s found primarily in the midsection of the country, where it follows the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. In these moist, fertile lands, it flourishes, growing more quickly than other Hickory Trees (Pecan is a type of Hickory). Thomas Jefferson was a fan of Pecans. He planted several at Monticello, and he convinced his friend, George Washington, to plant some at Mt. Vernon as well. Uncommon on the East Coast, Pecans were known as “Illinois Nuts” to Jefferson.

How to use Pawnee Pecan Treeling in the landscape?

Pawnee is the most popular pecan being planted today! An early producer, Pawnee, will grace you with pecans up to 2-3 weeks before other pecan varieties. A hearty producer, you'll be picking sweet-flavored pecans by mid to late October, just in time to bake a fall-time pecan pie!

How To Plant Pawnee Pecan Treeling

Just as Pawnee Pecan appreciates low, fertile plains in the wild, it favors deep, rich, moist soil in the home landscape, too. It will certainly survive in drier sites, but it will grow more slowly there. Plant it in full sun and give it lots of room. Pecan Trees can get quite large and they live a long time—200 to 300 years! This is a hardy tree, tolerating heat and requiring anther pecan such as Kanza or Lakota to cross-pollinate. It is recommended to not try and transplant after Pawnee becomes established due to the deep taproot that extends down into the ground.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care. We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*For Big trees and Shrubs, Size XL and bigger: Review our Seasonal Shipping Timelines and Policy here.

Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations. Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

Shipping Delays:

From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health. Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order. Bower & Branch allows our Growers to make final shipping decisions based solely to benefit your trees and plants’ health and success.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
