    My father’s pecan trees here in Ohio do bloom but do not set fruit (a pollination problem). Do your trees have long green catkins in the Spring. Here is a link to pecan blooms: https://www.google.com/search?q=pecan+blooms&client=firefox-a&hs=jfk&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=sb&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=M37MU8bOFMOfyASYi4DYBg&ved=0CC0QsAQ&biw=1024&bih=616

    I have read that a pecan tree will not set fruit by itself. You have to have two different varities that happen to bloom at the same time so that they can cross pollinate. Do the leaves have an aroma when crushed?

    Another fact about the tree…if you cut off a leaf, the sap has an incredibly strong odor.

    Not a pecan. Have not seen any nuts or fruit

    Most probably a pecan – though detail of leaves not good. Less probably a walnut.
