Pecan, what is it good for?
As it turns out, pecan trees make great gardening material. It is a hard wood; meaning that it is rigid, strong, and will not rot quickly. On the slope are the stumps of pecan trees that once towered. On an established tree, it takes more than cutting it down to remove it. Luckily, that is the case with these trees. The growth from the stumps make for nice foliage. However, when the foliage becomes too dense and too tall, they can be harvested for use in the garden or fire starting.
