A large, slow-growing tree of hillsides and uplands, Pignut Hickory produces inconspicuous green flowers (April-May) which mature into somewhat thin-shelled, bitter nuts, which are an important food source for wildlife. Dark-green compound leaves turn a wonderful yellow in the fall. Tolerant of drought and Black Walnuts, the strong, shock-resistant wood of these trees has been historically used for tool handles, ladders, yokes, and wagon wheels, among many other uses.
