Shagbark Hickory Seedlings
Shagbark Hickory Seedlings
Shagbark Hickory Seedlings Carya ovata 60-80' or taller.

One of our most beautiful native nut trees. Straight trunked and draped with branches that curve skyward at the tips. Not only does the bark shag, it looks as though huge long strips are about to fall off.

After the tree reaches bearing age, about 40 years, it will shower the yard with sweet edible nuts. Those left unharvested germinate in the gardens, planted by local creatures, some four legged, some two. Rich yellow fall foliage.

Slow growing but very long-lived. Tough wood used for making tool handles. Some of this year’s supply comes from seed harvested for us by Russ Cohen, author of Wild Plants I Have Known? and Eaten.

Prefers rich well-drained loam but adaptable. Self-pollinating. Native to eastern U.S. Z4. (1-3' bare-root trees)
