The pecan was named the official state tree by the Texas Legislature in 1919. Of course, pecans are popular because their sweet, edible nuts taste so good. The mature pecan tree is usually 70 to 100 feet tall, but can grow to an astonishing 150 feet and higher! Pecans make attractive shade trees. Their wood is used to make furniture, floors, and paneling for walls.
