Pignut Hickory

The Pignut Hickory tree, Carya glabra, has medium green broad, flat leaves and firm, gray bark.  The bark may be marked in a sort of diamond pattern by shallow furrows and narrow ridges.


This tree grows well in fairly rich, well drained to dry soils.  It occurs with other hickories and with oaks, characteristically on hillsides and ridges.  This tree has spreading, often drooping, branches forming a tall, narrow crown.


Pignut Hickory trees, as with other hickories, has wood that is heavy, hard, strong and flexible.   It is used to manufacture handles for different tools, floorings, cabinets, and veneer for furniture.


The nuts of this particular hickory, unlike some of the others, are bitter and scarcely edible.  This fruit is a pear-shaped nut that is 1 ¼" long and an important food for squirrels, chipmunks and other wildlife.  Early settlers named the species "pignut" because their hogs loved to eat the nuts.


This striking shade tree turns a bright yellow for great fall color!


* Interesting bark


* Pear shaped nuts
