Grafted pecans are better choice than seedlings
I have been planting pecans in Northeast PA for perhaps 10 years now. Some of my pecan trees are huge although none has yet produced any fruit. Most of my seedling pecans which I purchase - quite cheaply, I might add - do not make it through to the next winter. Invariably the grafted ones do. A few seedlings did make it but that is the exception. If you want to be sure to have a pecan tree which survives in the Northeast, I'd say, bite the bullet and buy the more expensive grafted trees. If you live in the north, seedlings are a very hit or miss deal. Some will make it but most will not. Fully 80% of my pecan seedlings (purchased through the years from a variety of sources) have died; all of my grafted trees - purchased from Stark - have survived. They are now large trees. I will also say that the few seedlings which did survive, came from Stark but - truth be told - not all of Stark seedlings survive, either. No company sells seedlings which a favorable survival rate. Pecans are beautiful trees once they get very large but it is a bit tricky to get them to that point. Bottom line is that you absolutely should buy the more expensive grafted pecans - in the long run, you will save money .....and you will have large pecan trees in 7-10 years. My zone is 5b
