Description

Steeped in folklore and traditional use, hickories are powerful trees with a myriad of benefits on multiple levels. They are the epitome of resiliency, feed native insects and wildlife and, produce a world class hardwood. The edible nuts can be used for candies, baked goods, nut milk, and cooking oil. Hickories stand all around us offering abundance and strength in a world that needs their gifts more than ever. Join Akiva Silver of Twisted Tree Farm for a talk on this remarkable genus.
