Pecan Tree help?!!
I just moved to south AL, Citronelle to be exact.
The house we purchased was built in the early 70's and seems
to be in a pecan orchard.
I am totally ignorant when it comes to taking care of pecans but want to learn!
In June this year when we looked at the house (it sits on 1.5 acres) the pecan trees were huge and green and full.
My understanding is, pecan trees produce pecans in Sept? but it seems out of all the trees on our property, one produced pecans but are no longer there or on the ground for that matter. At any rate, my trees dropped all their leaves, I then noticed that the trees, most of them, were cut. It looks as though they cut them to make them grow out instead of up? Is this typical? So my other thing is, my brother seems to think the trees are diseased but for some strange reason they are all starting to grow new bright wonderful leaves. Is this normal?
I have no clue what kind of pecan trees they are, how do I find out? How do I take care of them? They are huge trees and I don't want them to die.
Any advice is appreciated!
