Over 100 Years .... and still Growing! The business was started in 1902 as the Simpson Nursery Company, a family partnership. By the early 1960's Simpson Nursery Company had become the nation's leading producer of pecan trees and watermelon seed. In 1963 the business was sold to Gro-Plant Industries and the product mix was expanded to a complete line of deciduous trees and shrubs. At present, the nursery has 135 full-time employees and 1300 total acres. Each year approximately 20 acres are planted for pecan tree production. That production cycle runs three years. The nursery also plants 60 acres in general field nursery stock each year with a production cycle of two years.
