Pecan trees in public squares in Texas
Notions Capital writes:
Parks and courthouse squares in Central Texas are planted with pecan trees. Families often picnic and then pick the nuts out of the grass with pole-mounted tin cans.
According to JD Mitchell, Sr., entomologist, the pecan trees on the public square which are now quite young, will in a few years produce an abundant supply.
This is from "Treasure Island: Riches of all kinds are well within reach on Seguin-area tour" in Texas Co-op Power Magazine:
Seguin is known as the Pecan Capital of Texas for its pecan-producing industry, and pecan trees abound on the town square, where a pecan-shaped sculpture nearly the size of a Smart Car graces the front lawn of the Guadalupe County Courthouse.
The photo above is from Seguin, Texas and the sculpture is visible in the photo.
