Native to North America, the pecan tree is part of the walnut family. There are 16 species of walnut, including black walnut and American pecan.
The pecan tree, also known as the sweet pecan tree, is one of the best-known hickory essences. Pecan trees are excellent multipurpose trees, as they provide nuts and aesthetic value. This furniture-grade wood is particularly sought after by woodworkers. The pecan tree was proclaimed the state tree of Texas in 1919.
With quality and aesthetics in mind, pecan caskets manufactured at Victoriaville & Co. are designed to meet the highest quality standards.
