Champion Pecan in Weatherford

The Champion Pecan Tree in Weatherford, Texas is owned by Bill and Lynn Finch, and they are delighted to have you visit.  Their farm and the tree are three miles north of the downtown square, on the right side of Highway 51.  The property is a white house on the right as you start up the hill from a new bridge over a creek.  Check in at the house and then walk past the barn and across a dry creek to the tree.  The Finches welcome you, but please be respectful to their property and the tree.  Leave your card or a note on where you're from.  If you can’t make the visit, check out the photos of the tree in the library of Dirt
