Hickory trees are native, cold hardy trees of the United States, and the hickory tree wood is very dense and hard and valuable to use in smoking meats to flavor and preserve them. The hickory nut is round with a tasty, distinctly flavored kernel that is surrounded by a hard shell. The trees usually do not begin bearing nuts until the tree is 15 to 20 years old, but once at bearing age, dependable crops of hickory nuts can be expected every year. Hickory trees thrive in wet soils, and in nature hickories are commonly found growing along river banks growing close to streams. Hickory trees are self pollinating, and Aaron's hickory tree nursery can ship out your order immediately during the dormant season by UPS, and the trees will be delivered fast right to your front door.
