Best pecan trees for Louisiana

Posted by stevehiker (My Page) on

I'm looking to plant a few pecan trees in the yard. I want trees that grow BIG pecans. I'm not interested at all in commercial value, or trees that produce small nuts. These trees will be for shade and the pleasure of seeing pecans grow big and fat and fall to the ground.

How well do the Moreland, Oconee and Desireable trees do in the pine woods of the gulf coast (SE La., St. Tammany Parish)? We're somewhat similar to the flat pine lands of south MS. But not like the marshes and swamps south of here.

I've heard leaf scab is a problem. Is that true only if you have a few pecan trees? Also, the Moreland originated in Louisiana, so I have a hard time believing all the scare talk about scab disease.
