It can be. Photos will help me to confirm what is going on. This can be due to age, or fungal infections.

I don't know if your area is "boggy" or if you are far enough away from overly wet soil, but this would be a big factor in the health of your pecan. Wet soils can lead to severe infections for trees that are not designed to handle it.
