Shellbark Hickory Carya laciniosa
Family: Juglandaceae (Walnut)
Other names: Big Shagbark Hickory
large tree resembles Shagbark Hickory, though it is more restricted in
range. Its nuts are bigger and with thicker husks and shells and
just about every feature is a bit bigger than Shagbark. The twigs
are a more orange colour, and the midrib of the leaf often
remains attached to the twig well into the winter.
