Meet the Pecan Tree: Ashland Tree of the Year 2003

It’s been far too long since I posted a new Tree of the Year post — this one is the 2003 winner.

It appears to be doing quite nicely, no doubt basking in the glow of its award. Even though it won way back in 2003, in tree years that’s like yesterday.

Wikipedia fact: Pecan trees may live and bear edible nuts for more than 300 years.

You can view the full list of annual winners here.

And I’ve added this tree to my growing Google Map.

If you have any requests for the next post, let me know…I need to get outside more often and would love an excuse.
