Huge California Pecan Turning Wood

Pecan trees are large deciduous trees that grow between 65 to 170 feet tall. Before European settlement, pecans were widely consumed and traded by Native Americans. As a food source, pecans were a natural choice for a pre-agricultural society. Hollow tree trunks, found in abundance in pecan stands, offered a perfect storage location for the nuts. They can provide two to five times more calories per unit weight than wild game, and require no preparation.
