Carya glabra

Pignut hickory

Carya glabra is a tree native and common across the region. It is found in a variety of forests, and prefers to be grown in sunny, well-drained, soils. It is drought tolerant once established. The nuts this tree produces in the fall are popular food for wildlife of all shapes and sizes (from bears to wood ducks), and it is a host for several native butterflies and moths. Carya glabra works well for restoration projects.
