  • Ecological Value: Pecan is a shade tree in the Juglandaceae (walnut) family and native to the central and east-central United States and Mexico. It is grown mostly for its delicious edible nuts that appear in the summer after an insignificant bloom. Pollination is an important factor in purchasing pecan trees. Pecan trees are monoecious: they have separate male and female flowers on the same tree. Pollen is not released when flowers are receptive, so pollination within and between the same cultivars is limited. Due to its size, this is a tree most appropriate for a large property. It makes a good shade tree in a naturalized, woodland, or recreational area and as part of a children’s, edible, or pollinator garden.
