The pecan tree is located at 710 S. Silver Ave. It was planted in 1993 by Jim and Kristi Boyle.

A pecan tree may grow to a height of 70-100 ft. It does well in full sun and needs moist, well drained soil. A pecan tree grows into an oval shape and has a spread of 40-75 ft. at maturity. This plant needs two trees for pollination, Tree Board member Mary Shimmin said.
