Shellbark Hickory Tree

Largest of All Hickories

Thin-shelled nuts split on their own when fully ripe, with a flavor similar to pecans. Attractive tree that tolerates many soil types. Grows 60 to 80 ft. tall with a straight, sturdy trunk, shaggy bark and glowing golden timber. Plant two for pollination.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

I'm gardening elsewhere.
