Pecan Tree Toppings

Homestead Plants/Trees

July 6 & 7, 2017 –  As the row of pecan trees next to the house back to the grain bin had become very tall and spindly–growing so close together–Steve Cain’s (Cain’s Tree and Landscaping) advice was to “top” them so they would not be so susceptible to high winds. We also decided to top rather than remove the one next to the carport.

They also removed the limbs over the barn and the tall skiney sweet gum close to the NW corner of the barn. The gum had stunted a nice small live oak that hopefully will fill out the flat side and grow.

They also limbed up the two pecans along the driveway.  It took the 1.5 days he estimated and cost $3,900 that included the trimming, cutting a lot of firewood and hauling everything else away.
