Apologies for double posting - the photo upload didn’t work on the previous post.

Tree sleeping at this time of year. Check soil is not getting too wet. New leaves will follow in spring.

Hi Melissa,
I’m no expert on pecans but I just planted 10 seedlins(about 6 weeks ago), and they all looked like this just before they dropped all of their leaves for winter. The stems still look good.

Pecans are deciduous. My ones have already lost all of their leaves for the winter. They looked like that a few weeks ago.

Hi Melissa

Pecans are deciduous trees. Leaves will go yellow in winter and fall, but it will grow new shoots and leaves during early spring. Just keep an eye on it and water it sparingly. They need less water and no fertilizer during the colder months. IMHO it's just going thru its normal life cycle.

Happy gardening :-)

Pecans are deciduous and are affected in autumn/winter. The top leaves appear sun burnt but that could’ve been due to transferring pot to ground, some of my plants have done that due to shock and sensitive roots. Ive lost a couple of young jackfruits that way with due to medium root disturbance when moving from pot to ground.
Good idea with the shade cloth that you’ve set up, come spring time it should start to pick up again.

Thanks everyone. I feel like a bit of a dill for not knowing they’re deciduous but there you go - always learning!
