Hickory Trees 

The leaves of the Hickory tree are considered to be a pinnately compound. They can also look odd since it has a different number of leaflets. Although these leaves are green, they will change color. In the fall, you can expect them to turn gold in color. During this time, it is when the nuts will begin to ripen and begin to fall. These nuts are an excellent food source for squirrels, raccoons, and foxes. Male and female flowers can occur on the same tree and do not require any need for action on plant fertilization. These flowers are referred to as "catkins" and commonly form in the spring. With natural winds, the male flowers typically pollinate the female flowers. 

The bark of the Hickory trees can often be seen as incredibly smooth when the tree is young.

It will begin to get rougher in texture as the tree continues to age. As the tree continues to grow, you can expect constant growth over the years. Branches on the tree can be expected to grow between twenty to thirty feet quickly. As seen by the top of the tree, one can assume that roots can grow even more since they are in the soil. Taproots can often be seen to be a massive network underneath the soil with these trees. The roots can grow and support the tree providing centuries of potential life, with some being recorded living up to three hundred years. 

If you choose to use the wood for woodworking or for burning, it has some unique properties. If used for a project, one could use this sturdy wood to make tools, furniture, or paddles. When barbecuing, this wood provides a unique smoked flavor when cooking meats. If your home or property has a wood-burning stove, hickory trees are perfect, as the trees' fast growth will allow for little maintenance for wood burning. This high flammability of the wood is due to the high energy content that makes up the wood. With some species, they use these trees to produce certain types of syrup. 

Overall the Hickory tree would be a great addition to any property, whether only for appearances or just as a wood producer.

The rapid growth rate will provide you with some shade or some wood, depending on your preference. If you purchase these trees to plant, one can expect that they will be a sturdy plant throughout its life, with many probably outliving even this century.

Hickory trees, comprising the genus Carya, are part of a plant family that encompasses up to 18 species. Most can be found native to China, India, the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Many Hickory trees are great for providing products like nuts or wood and can be classified as a member of the walnut family. These trees are generally found in the environment of temperate rain forests, but can often be found in a range of conditions. Sometimes it even can be found on hillsides or ridges.
