I've decided to not try to "win the algorithm", and only make videos about what I'm genuinely interested in. Thank you very much for watching this video about Pecans. If you'd like to support a guy in Alabama making videos about (among other things) Pecans, please consider supporting here: www.patreon.com/smartereveryday. I send literally every Patreon supporter a really cool baseball with a Smarter Every Day logo on it.

@E-IRONMAN MARSDEN There's no such thing as the reverse of centrifugal force, getting the balls to roll inward using centrifugal force would be impossible with our laws of physics here on Earth

Clearly it would be more effective if the vibrator were higher up. Shaking from close to the base wastes energy.

I would guess, that it does not make a huge difference in which direction the tree is shaken, because the thin twigs act like a rope. Take a rope, 2 or 3 meters long, and make kind of a two dimensional sine wave at one end, while the rope is hanging straight down. Watch the rope while doing that. Do it left and right, and then shift your movement 90 degrees, compare both cases. It will also work while the rope is laying on the floor, it is just more difficult to shift the movement by 90 degrees while having gravity. I guess it is the same for the tree, just upside-down compared to the hanging rope.

I grew up with a massive Pecan tree in my backyard as a kid. One of our chores/punishment was keeping all the sticks and pecans picked up. It was a never ending task! How I miss those Pecans! My grandfather has a couple trees, and I covet the 5 lbs I get for Christmas every year! Best gift ever!

This was very interesting to watch as I live in and amongst 4600 acres of pecan trees her in Green Valley Arizona. Most people don't realize how much work goes into growing pecans. It's a year around continuous process. If I could just see what's happening in the orchards I could tell you what time of year it is. Right now they are still harvesting some but mostly doing pruning. Thanks for the video! I subscribed.
Tom Před 11 dny
regarding the shaking from two sides my first thought was not the direction but the frequency. There must certainly be a frequency at which each tree starts to resonate to a certain degree, if one was to find out which frequency that is or even had a tool that would automatically ramp through different frequencies to test each tree you could probably get more nuts off the tree in a shorter time frame.

Pecans not payCans. English stress is on the first consonant of the first Syllable not the second one. It draws the word out unnecessarily. A bit like how they made Steven Call bert change to Stephen coal bear once he got stateside. I dont know if its coz they thought it sounded gayer ? You know those teewee execs right 😉

All the good things in that sentence •hot rodding dad’s car •a kid having the skills to hot rod a car(granted a simple carburated engine would be easier to work) •making your son work in the garden doing useful things, getting fit and learning a lesson for a whole summer. •pecans

I'm sure it's been said a hundred times. But I can't help but think of the community of squirrels that live around this place. It's probably guarded like a Fort Knox of the squirrel world.

Maybe I'm a big softy but its so beautiful watcing in slow motion as the tree yields such an impressive cloud of peacans and gracefully raises its branches, in response to the mechanical aggrevation.

Destin, I love these videos, but the camera shake makes it uncomfortable to watch sometimes, especially at the high framerate. We would enjoy your videos even more if you could find a way to stabilize the video while recording or editing. Keep up the great work!

Interesting. We have two tree shaker manufacturers right here in Northern Ca. OMC and Coe Equipment. Walnuts and Almonds are everything around these parts. Almonds are pronounced like salmon. My Dad grew up in Chico, Ca. He says Ammonds.

Wow! In about the 1980s there was an Australian TV program on in South Africa, called "Beyond 2000". I did not miss an episode! This was about technology being developed at the time that was thought to be mainstream in the years 2000 and onward. This idea of shaking a tree to harvest it was then being developed. I seem to remember, at the time, they mentioned about treating the trees with a hormone which would ensure the nuts would open and ready for shaking. They also used tarpaulins under the trees to catch the harvest, elevating the need for the machine that pics them up. Very interesting to see the whole process!

You also did a good job of breaking CSshows's compression - Its clearly suffering from high entropy and takes a real dive in sharpness once there's leaves and nuts flying everywhere. The Slo Mo Guys did a really cool experiment using glitter for a similar effect, once
