    Interested in giving brother in Austin area a baby pecan tree for Christmas. Can anyone recommend a good mail order source and varieties for that area?

    the INdian names work there and I had 3 of them flourishing in my LAmpasas county farmette an hour away from Austin in the 90s. There was a nursery I ordered from but it was other side from AUstin. GOogle texas pecan trees or nurseries?

    Is your brother in town or out? I would suggest maybe a selected native over the improved varieties as they are much easier to raise and have pecans without worrying about spraying and foliar feeding.
