All the pecan I’ve seen practically spalts on its own. Most of it was bucked to be firewood. I have a slab from a different source as well.

Might try Craig’s list for firewood in your area for Pecan. Any wood laying on or near the ground can start spalting as little as six months in most parts of NC. Most tress left laying on the ground for more than two years become useless for turning.

I have some spalted pecan and it makes for a beautiful contrast with walnut.

Have your say...
