Planning to install this tree yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for do it yourself installations. These small sizes do not require any offloading equipment!
Trees that are sized by height or caliper are delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap. They require heavy equipment to install. We recommend working with a contractor for installation! They can also provide the equipment necessary for offloading the tree upon delivery. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor has equipment ready upon your trees arrival! OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.

Elliot Pecan is a massive deciduous tree  popular in the South for its small but very high quality and strongly flavored teardrop shaped nuts.  The compound green leaves turn yellow-brown in fall.  Elliot matures early, starting to produce a good yield of nuts at a mere 6-9 years, but bear alternately.  Grows best in full sun and rich, moist well-drained soils.  Elliot is highly resistant to scab but is tender to late spring freezes.
