Grow your own piece of history with a seedling propagated from a “Famous Tree of Texas” that has been on the WOB historic site since the early 1800s.

gs-LA-BAHIA-PECAN-cropDesignated a “Famous Tree of Texas” by the Texas A&M Forest Service, the La Bahia Pecan tree on the historic site overlooks the historic ferry crossing where the Navasota and Brazos rivers meet.  It is unknown how the tree became sited here, but it is possible that it germinated when a nut dropped from the saddlebags of a trader in the early 1800s, this stately pecan tree has been a silent observer to many of the events which shaped our beloved state.  You can grow your own piece of history with a seedling propagated from this historic tree.  Seedling cannot be shipped; available online or by phone order. Please contact Jim Ellison at 979-451-9187 on any questions about the trees, availability, shipping, or where to pickup. 

La Bahia pecan seedlings come in three gallon pots, with certificate of authenticity.
