Carya ovata - Shagbark Hickory

Native hickory, the shagbark is the finest and largest of our locally common hickories. It isn't hard to find old, regal specimens in lawns, hedgerows, fields and woods--in fact, Tompkins County and the entire Finger Lakes region is home to some of the world's biggest and grandest old shagbark hickories. Countless species of wildlife depend on hickory nuts for survival, and in certain years the trees yield bumper crops--called 'masting'.
