Amling can reach up to 100 feet in height, and grow as high as 150 feet in ideal conditions. This tree boasts scaly grey bark and medium green leaves with up to 17 lance-shaped leaflets, with the added benefit of delicious pecans that are simple and easy to shell.

The Amling is the highest recommended pecan tree by for home growing and is a cultivar from Alabama. One of its most attractive qualities is the scab resistance and excellent kernel quality. The Amling features a yield of roughly 62 nuts per pound with anywhere from 50-60% kernel. The Amling Pecan is a Type I pollinator and requires a Type II to produce nuts.

Shipping Info

Once your Amling Pecan Tree order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish.

No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.

Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.

We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.

Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?

Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.

our story Lloyd nurseryGrowing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.

Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!

Pot Sizes

Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.

Shipping Fees

Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order.  Please use the chart below to see what your shipping charge will be.

The Amling Pecan needs a location in full sun where it will have great clearance for it’s large mature size to remain in full sun and with good airflow. Soil should be well drained and not soggy, but regular watering is essential for the life and productivity of any Pecan Tree, and especially important for a newly planted tree.

Pecans have a very deep root system and in order to be sufficiently hydrated, water should be given slowly and plentifully to achieve moisture at the necessary depth. Pest can be a concern for any Pecan variety so a pesticide, especially one that targets Aphids, should be kept on hand to apply when needed.


Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.

Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.

Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.

A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.

To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your Amling Pecan Tree, our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!

    The trees came sooner than expected, and were alive. So far so good. I have not had to water them because of the rain we have been getting. They are growing and appear to be healthy.

    Our trees are dormant, which is expected in winter, which is a great time to plant here in the south. Trees were 4-5ft tall with some branching. Ordered 6 trees.
