About Jim Locksley

One day when I was walking around my college campus, I saw a group of people with these yellow tripods. At first I thought they might be photographers, but they sure looked like strange ones! I went up and asked them what they were doing, and it turns out they were a group of students from a construction class who were surveying the land for a project. I was fascinated. I was able to sign up for the class the next semester, and while it didn't stick or change my professional trajectory, it did create a new hobby for me! Ever since then, I've been interested in construction, from surveying to management to the actual building. I figured running a blog about it would give me a nice excuse to keep up my interests!

    There is a large variety of pecan trees numbering over a thousand different varieties. Pecan trees can grow extremely large once mature, and for this reason need to be spaced a minimum of thirty five feet apart at planting. It's fairly easy to determine when you can begin harvesting pecans. Generally, when you see that the shucks (or hulls) of the pecans are splitting open and a nut is starting to fall out, your pecans are ready for harvest.
