A species indigenous to North America,
hickory trees are widespread in the Eastern U.S. Hickory
trees are related to the pecan, another nut tree indigenous
to North America. The Hickory tree
has an ashy gray bark similar to birch trees, except that its
bark separates into long strips which give the trunk its shaggy
look. The Hickory tree is tall and straight and can grow to
about 100 feet tall. The branches can spread to 25 feet, the
lower branches somewhat droop while the upper branches are
upright. The wood of this tree is strong and tough.
Shagbark hickory tree usually grows among oak trees. It grows
wet and dry areas, but grows best in well-drained
soils. The Hickory tree is very common in the wild, especially
in the Eastern forests of the United States.
