Top Three Member Voted Trees

Georgia's Pecan Tree

 

Tree: Pecan 

Location: Toccoa, Georgia.

Size: Estimated 4' DBH

This is a pecan tree at my great-grandfather’s home place. My 88 year old mom is standing beside it. She remembers the tree growing up - searching for pecans and the adults using a limb during hog-killing time. My husband and I just purchased the property.
