Mandan Tree Planting & Pecan Tree Care
The best time of year to plant pecans is in late winter to early spring. A layer of mulch at the top of the root ball and tree trunk will help retain moisture. This nut tree needs a lot of water the first few years to establish a strong root system.
Mandan prefers moist, well-drained soil and sunlight. You can perform a soil test to test what nutrients are lacking and for soil pH. We suggest doing this while the pecan is still a young tree. Common nutrient problems include zinc deficiency. You can amend the soil with zinc sulfate.
Young pecan trees need several gallons of water per day. This will continue until the pecan established into a mature tree.
Buy pecan trees for their nut production and shade tree opportunities. Pick your planting site first before choosing your pecan.
