Hickory species growing in southern Ontario, the eastern United States and from northern Texas to northern Florida. This species of hickory does not produce edible nuts but its nut is of good size, a little larger than the nuts of the cordiform hickory. The hairless hickory can reach more than 20 m in our latitudes and grows well in dry, highly draining soils, especially on hill slopes. However, it grows less quickly here than in its natural area. It is slightly more hardy thanCarya tomentosaand is easily established in zone 4b. Like most, if not all, hickories, it has a large vertical root and a few smaller radial roots. Its wood is mainly used to make firewood but it can also be used to make tool handles thanks to its high resistance. It has a beautiful yellowish fall color which makes it a good candidate as an ornamental tree on your land or in the parks of Eastern Canada. It's rare so it's an interesting species of choice.
