Description

The Bitternut Hickory is a tall slender tree.  It is found on moist sites on upper flood plains and at the bottom of slopes.  The leaves are from 6 to 9 inches long and composed of seven to  eleven leaflets.

The individual leaflets are more slender than those of the other hickories except the pecan.  The nut itself has a thin brittle, creamy colored shell with a reddish-coated kernel, very bitter in taste.

The bark is much smoother than the shagbark hickory.  Young branches are gray in color, slightly ridged and often tinged with yellow.  Larger brances and trunk is granite gray and coarser.
