Answer: It sounds like your pecans are growing in poor soil or poorly drained soil. Nut trees need well drained soil to grow well. Heavy clay or wet areas will stunt the growth of the roots and trees. Also, try applying a complete fertilizer such as 10-10-10 to the tree in spring to stimulate more growth. After 8 years, your tree should be much taller than 9 feet. With a little help, it'll really get growing.
