On October 1, 2019, the Texas Pecan Board gathered at the State Capitol with some of the state’s pecan growers in honor of the 100th anniversary of the pecan tree being the State Tree of Texas. This also marked the beginning of Texas Pecan Month by gubernatorial proclamation. Bob Whitney, Executive Director of the Texas Pecan Board, said during the recognition of this wonderful achievement, “Texas has had a long love affair with pecans, and we aren’t surprised, but of course thrilled…As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of our State Tree, we hope every Texan will embrace Texas Pecan Month and reconnect with what is the only truly native nut to America and indeed Texas.”
