Carya laciniosa, also known as shellbark hickory, is a slow-growing, long-lived tree that is native to the eastern and midwestern United States. It is also called shagbark hickory, bigleaf shagbark hickory, kingnut, big, bottom, thick, or western shellbark because of its various characteristics. This tree prefers deep, rich soil and does well in wet conditions. The fruit is sweet and can be eaten raw or cooked in pies and cakes. The nuts are the largest of all hickory nuts and are a favorite among wildlife and people. The wood is hard, heavy, strong, and flexible, making it perfect for tool handles. The tree grows up to 121 feet tall with a diameter of 46.2 inches and may have a spread of up to 74 feet. While rare in its natural range due to human activities, shellbark hickory may be found in association with other hardwoods. Some uses of shellbark hickory include furniture, fuelwood, and drum sticks.
