Well, I just wrote to introduce myself and now I'm writing with my first question.

I just moved into this wonderful old house with these huge Pecan trees. Everything was going fine, but it rained over the weekend, and I when I went by to check on the house, two of the trees had quite large branches that had broken off.

I don't really know much about Pecan trees. Is this normal? These don't look like fragile trees. So, why are these big branches breaking off. It wasn't even a bad rainstorm.

Thanks
Victoria

We have 15 pecan trees and even though they are gigantic they are fragile. We have limbs down all the time. It doesn't seem to hurt them. Unless you fertilize them with zinc every year they will only produce every other.

i second what sheri said. i used to have huge, 50 yr old pecan trees, and they would lose a few limbs, but never have anything drastic happen to them.

I don't do much to my pecan trees, got an even doze 25 year old trees around the front of my plaCE pick the limbs up when the wind blows and try not to park or sit anything under them, not just because of the limbs but the tree sap will ruin everything. Black moldy looking tree sap.
