Bitternut hickory (Carya cordiformis) is a deciduous tree species native to North America. It grows to an average height of 50-75 feet with a spread of 20-35 feet and has a slow to medium growth rate.
The tree prefers well-drained, moist soil and full sun exposure. It can tolerate a wide range of soil types, including sand, clay, and loam, but prefers neutral to slightly acidic soil (pH 6.0-7.0).
Bitternut hickory is drought-tolerant and can adapt to various climates. It is a good choice for large landscapes, parks, or as a shade tree. It is also used for wood production.
For proper growth and health, it is recommended to water the tree regularly, especially during dry periods, and mulch around the base to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
