Pecan tree in Florida is feeling lonely!
« on: June 05, 2018, 04:45:56 PM »
Trying to figure out how far away another tree could be to pollinate my pecan tree. Had a good crop my 1st year here but most were blown out of tree from tropical storm. This year only afew. Did it self pollinate or is it from another tree that i cant find anywhere in the neighborhood

   This site say up to 1/4 mile away but within 300 feet is ideal.
