Opinions large and small, worth everything you pay for them.
Quick question, do you refer to the tree as a "Pecan tree" or a "Hickory tree"?
It's a pecan, a mohawk to be precise. Planted it the summer after I moved in.Hickory is a different critter; if I'd had a place for it I'd have planted one of those in back.
Saw a guy in the grassy segment between the looping off and on ramps from Ga Hwy 5 and I 75 South in Marietta laying out a tarp under a cluster of Pecan trees there and getting ready to harvest...don't know if the State Patrol moved him on or not, but there's plenty of space so no safety issue, but free pecans? go for it mate!
Count yourself lucky, our pecan tree hardly has anything on it this year, tho the tree-rats may have already picked it clean, a month ago I was cussing them for tossing down half-chewed green ones. The oaks are doing good, tho, dropping acorns everywhere.
Last year only had a few, and the t-rats got those before even had a chance to ripen. If could've done it without ticking off the neighbors, I'd have put their asses in a stewpot.Differ, down in Texas you'll see stands of pecans on the highway right-of-way, and signs saying 'Do not flail the pecans'; in other words, pick up what's fallen but don't beat on the trees to knock more down.
