Thanks. It's been on heck of a year with all these storms we've had. Lost a lot of limbs and a few tree because of it.
My Mom has a half dozen pecan trees around her house, some pretty good producers. Any time I am headed up that way I will email and ask if she needs me to bring anything. Her reply normally is "yes, bring your chain saw. I have another limb down". Man, those pecan limbs break easily.
We have a bigger problem with crows. Don't get me wrong, squirrels do their part but those damn crows will set up in the tops of the trees and pick the pecans before they're even ripe. Just a few of them can pick a tree clean (depending on size) in a matter of days. They have super hearing and eyesight so they're very hard to kill unlike a squirrel. We use propane powered noise cannons to keep them at bay but some of them get wise to it and stay anyway.
