Pecan orchards have been in our family for five generations and Frank Wetherbee started Nut Tree Pecan in 1968. Since he began his pecan career, he has been an innovator in all aspects of the industry from being the first to irrigate a pecan orchard to having the second mechanized harvester in Georgia. He was one of the first to use air blast sprayers and tree shakers to care for and harvest his crop. Frank also founded the only privately held shelling co-op in the state that yielded significantly higher prices to its grower members from 1968 to 2002.
