Description

The Ellis Pecan Tree is a delicious and nutritious nut tree grown in warm climates. It can grow up to 70 feet tall and is best suited for growing zones 7-9.

Ellis Pecan Tree

The Ellis pecan tree is a type II, protogynous cultivar that was developed by the University of Georgia Pecan Breeding Program. It is a cross between the Oconee and Pawnee cultivars, and is known for its large, high-quality nuts, excellent scab resistance, and early maturity.

Ellis pecan trees typically grow to a height of 75-100 feet and a width of 40-70 feet. They have a strong, upright growth habit and produce large, oblong to slightly obovate nuts. The nuts are easy to shell and have a rich, flavorful kernel.

Ellis pecan trees are relatively low-maintenance. They prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. They are drought-tolerant once established, but they will benefit from regular watering during the first year after planting. Fertilize Ellis pecan trees once a year in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.

Ellis pecan trees are a good choice for home gardens, commercial orchards, and park plantings. They are also a good choice for growing in colder climates, as they are relatively cold-hardy.

Here are some additional tips for growing Ellis pecan trees:

  • Plant Ellis pecan trees in the spring or fall, when the soil is cool and moist.
  • Space Ellis pecan trees 40-60 feet apart.
  • Water Ellis pecan trees regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize Ellis pecan trees once a year in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Mulch around Ellis pecan trees to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Prune Ellis pecan trees as needed to remove dead or diseased branches and to shape the tree.

Ellis pecan trees are a beautiful and productive addition to any landscape. They provide shade, food, and wildlife habitat. With proper care, Ellis pecan trees can thrive for many years to come.

Creative response:

Imagine a towering Ellis pecan tree standing in the middle of a meadow, its branches laden with nuts. The tree is a beacon of life and abundance, providing food for wildlife and shade for all who pass by.

A squirrel scampers up the trunk of the tree, its bushy tail flicking behind it. The squirrel reaches a nut and plucks it from the branch. It pauses to nibble on the nut before scampering away to hide it for later.

A flock of birds swoops down and lands in the branches of the tree. The birds peck at the nuts, their feathers ruffled by the breeze.

A gentle breeze blows through the meadow, rustling the leaves of the Ellis pecan tree. The tree sways gently, its branches casting long shadows across the grass.

The Ellis pecan tree is a symbol of strength, resilience, and abundance. It is a reminder of the beauty of nature and the importance of caring for our environment.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plants are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in Fall and Winter and will lose most of their leaves looking dead and dry, is very normal. The plants will flush out in Spring.

We cannot ship certain plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by the California Department of Agriculture.

Bare Root Plants: the plant is shipped with the roots taken out of the pot/ground, and the roots are then wrapped in moist paper, with or without soil. The roots wrapped in moist medium is then covered with some kind of plastic to hold the moisture. The paper with moisture will keep the plant alive, during the journey. The plants, once received, the roots should be given a soak for 30 minutes and planted immediately.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
