Shagbark hickory tree and nut shells.


Jan said...

I've never seen a tree trunk like this one. Is it typical of the hickory?

Terry and Linda said...

Now that is cool! We don't have a tree like that here!

My brother has a shag bark hickory. What a great tree.

It seems it's a host plant for Luna moths.

Do you ever have have them around your outside lights?

Jan, it is typical of a mature shagbark. There are other kinds that are not as shaggy, nor are the young trees. For some reason I love them..

Linda, I just love them!

Cathy, I have never seen one here on the farm, although we do see them at camp sometimes. Wish we did have them...they are so beautiful..
