Historic Pecan Seedlings
A pecan tree in the park has been discovered near the ferry landing where Sam Houston may
have rested or ridden past on horseback 175 years ago. The nuts were picked from the
top of the tree at the right stage of development with the help of USDA, Texas Forest
Service, Texas A&M Horticulture Department and Bluebonnet Electric.
The nuts were prepared, propagated, and nurtured.
They are now healthy seedlings ready for planting.
Must be picked up from Ellison’s greenhouse in Brenham.
Be one of the first to take home a Texas Independence
Pecan Seedling and leave a legacy for generations.
You will receive a certificate
that authenticates its history.
