Christian Bruns wrote:Thanks Bryant... I was going to take several down as I do not actually need 100 pecan trees. Which brings to mind more questions. I have never owned land or removed trees, but I am thinking the wood could be very useful. There are some pretty good deals around here for 5+ acres, just trying to figure out if the benefit of having a pecan orchard would outweigh the hassle of having a pecan orchard. Thanks so much for the comment!

Cool season crops like carrots, beets, lettuces, cabbages, etc. do great under the shade of my fruit trees throughout the heart of the summer.
