hickory trees
« on: April 02, 2012, 04:36:21 pm »
i want to plant some hickory trees on the boarder planting going on around my land. does anyone know where i can get hold of some as no-one does around here. are there many varieties because if there are it is the one used in the wood burning food smoker i am interested in. didn't think it was going to be hard to find but there ya go. 
1 acre of land where i am clearing trees and a swimming pool so we can make the land productive. MK3 hilux single cab pickup which has been completely rebuilt over the last 2 years matt black and cool as! no animals yet except a very furry black cat called Hansel (he is so hot right now)

Apparently there are 20 hickories, 19 native to North America and one to China, none to UK.   Have you tried Buckingham Nurseries?

www.hedging.co.uk but I've just had a look and they don't sell hickory trees.  They do sell the chips though and I can see from the price why you would want to grow your own  :o

that is a shrub not a tree really. my lady is from Brisbane and she says these don't go above 20' and they are an evergreen and an acacia not a true hickory! but thanx for the look up nice one! the search goes on!  ???
