Is it necessary to have two in order to get nuts? I got one a few years ago at a swap and it's doing great. Will I need to get another to have nuts? and if so does it need to be the same variety?

You may get a few nuts, but if you want a bigger crop, you need one each of two different varieties. Look around your neighborhood. There may be pecan trees near enough to provide the pollen you need.

Gingin, you need 2 pecan trees of different varieties to get pecans. They are not pollinated by insects but by the wind blowing the pollen. Don't ask me how far cause I don't know that yet. Hilarious!
