Some various species of Hickory

The first pictures are a Pignut Hickory trunk, which has an open diamond pattern, which is bigger than the pattern on ash trees. (That's a failed attempt at photographing a racoon in the second photo )

Re: Some various species of Hickory

The first photo in this post is a Shagbark Hickory trunk. The next one is a Bitternut Hickory twig, and the third one is a Bitternut Hickory tree in the background (it's the big one with a broad crown, and is shaped like its close cousin, the Pecan.)
BTW, the trees in the foreground of the third photo are Eastern Cottonwoods.

I'll have better pictures later.

Re: Some various species of Hickory

Here are some pictures of a Pignut Hickory at Western Michigan University. The buildings in the background are Rood Hall, and the Lee Honor's College building.
Also in the first photo is another Pignut Hickory in the background and a Silver Maple.
Also on the left side of the photo is a Serviceberry, which often bloom when the Black Morels are out, and a Crimson Variety of Japanese Maple. Barely visible behind the Pignut Hickory in the background is a Japanese Katsura Tree.
The second photo is the pendant male flowers, and the third picture is a cluster of female flowers.

Re: Some various species of Hickory

These are pictures of a Shagbark Hickory at WMU in Kalamazoo. The building in the background is the newer biology building, Haeneke Hall.
There is a Serviceberry tree on the left side of the first photo, and some more in the back of the Shagbark Hickory. Also note the Eastern White Pines and Norway Maple and Japanese Maple branches on the right side of the photo.
The second photo shows a Shagbark Hickory branch, with a Pignut Hickory Tree and Serviceberry bush in t he background. The third shows male flowers, the fourth, female flowers, and the bark in the fifth photo, with Eastern White Pines in the background.
(Thanks to WMU for putting signs at the base of most trees identifying them . Actually I knew most of them without help from the signs. )

Re: Some various species of Hickory

Hickories often grow with oaks, and are very easy to spot this time of the year. Oak trees are still more or less green, or starting to change, while many hickories, like Pignut Hickories, are bright yellow. The tree on the left and the tree to the right of the hickory are oaks. Those might be oaks in the background as well....hard to tell.

Re: Some various species of Hickory

That hickory tree in my previous photo is almost bare now.
Here's one that is a dull orange. It looks also like a Pignut Hickory.
