A great shade tree, the Amling pecan tree features an early harvest season from September through the end of October. The high quality nuts will not disappoint!

This tree is excellent when it comes to establishing a home orchard or closer to your house. Consequently, the tree’s shade provides a cooling alternative during summer and can consequently have the benefit of reduced air conditioning costs.

This fast growing tree boasts scaly grey bark and medium green leaves with up to 17 lance-shaped leaflets. Also with the added benefit of delicious pecans that are simple and easy to shell.

This cultivar exhibits lush dark green foliage and is incredibly resistant to pests, making it an ideal and easy to maintain yard tree that will liven up any landscape. Amling can reach up to 100 feet tall in height, and grow as high as 150 feet in ideal conditions.

Amling Pecan Care

The Amling is the highest recommended pecan tree by UGA.edu 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 Pecan Tree features a yield of roughly 62 nuts per pound with anywhere from 50-60% kernel.

The addition of fertilizer when planting trees will benefit the tree greatly when it is young. We prefer a granular fertilizer until the root system is established.

This nut tree is a Type 1 pollinator and requires a Type 2 pecan variety like Elliot Pecan or Kanza Pecan to produce nuts.

Care

AMLING PECAN TREE:

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.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS:

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!
