Orchard in February at Royalty Pecan Farms | View from the gift shop

What’s Happening on the Pecan Farm

At this time of year the major winter freezes should be over, but the orchard is still dormant, meaning budbreak hasn’t occurred yet. That makes February a great month for planting pecan trees. Here are some things for you to consider before planting your own pecan trees:

What variety/varieties will you plant?

Research this thoroughly. There are numerous pecan varieties to choose from. You’ll also want to find out if you have the right type of soil and an affordable irrigation plan to support your trees.

Are you going to plant bare root or container trees?

Your budget will determine this.

Where are you going to plant them?

Soil type makes a difference.
