Wow, what a huge pecan tree! The scientific name of the pecan tree is Carya illinoinensis. Please edit your spotting and put this name into the space for scientific name. Then your spotting will be considered identified. I'd like to suggest something to replace what you have put down for habitat. Why not use this: "George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens in Virginia" which gives more information. Thanks
