Hickory trees are deciduous in the Juglandaceae family. These plants are native to North America and are common in the eastern United States and Canada. They grow mainly in the Midwest and Southeast but can also be found as far west as California and Texas.

Their scientific name is Carya ovata, which means "oval nut." This name was given because of its oval-shaped nuts, similar to pecans, except they have more than one seed per kernel.

Hickory Trees Reaches 60-80 Feet Tall

They have a beautiful, distinctive autumn color and an attractive, open growth habit. They are medium-sized deciduous types between 60 and 80 feet tall and 20 to 40 feet wide. Their leaves are pinnately compound with smooth margins.

What Soils Hickory Trees Thrive In

It prefers full sun but will tolerate partial shade if it's not too deep or long-lasting—especially during years when there is less rainfall or the soil is dryer than usual. The best soils are moist but well-drained, slightly acidic to neutral pH (6.0 - 7.0), moderately fertile, and rich in organic matter such as compost; avoid vibrant soils that cause root rot problems in some species.

They proliferate initially but then slow down considerably once they reach full size after about ten years; they only need pruning if you want them trimmed back for visual reasons.

Hickory Trees Has Stunning Foliage

Hickory trees have compound leaves that grow alternately on the stem. Each leaf has 12 to 20 leaflets arranged in pairs along the midrib of each leaf, with one leaflet at each end of the pair being much smaller than the others.
