About the Bitternut Hickory Tree
Bitternut hickory trees, which are also commonly called swamp hickory trees, are very large deciduous trees that can live for up to 200 years in many cases. They grow best when they’re in moist soils, but they’re tolerant of lots of soil types. The wood produced by these wholesale hickory trees for sale from Cold Stream Farm is known to be hard and durable, which makes it ideal for making furniture, tool handles, and more. Bitternut hickory trees also produce seeds devoured by rabbits and other small animals.
About Shagbark Hickory Trees
Like bitternut hickory trees, the wholesale shagbark hickory trees grow to be very large. They can grow up to 90 feet tall when placed in well-drained soils. They also produce hickory nuts that attract a wide variety of small animals, like squirrels, chipmunks, and foxes as well as birds like mallards and wild turkeys. These wholesale hickory trees are easily recognizable thanks to their shaggy bark, and that bark can be used to add flavoring to maple-style syrup in some cases. You can trace shagbark hickory trees all the way back to the Native Americans, who used the trees to smoke meats, make bows, and much more.
