Annual temperatures range from 10 to 21 °C (50 to 70 °F). Mockernut grows well on well-drained sites in full sun or light shade, and like Shagbark, light shade early in life seems to help increase the rate of growth. Second International Wildland Fire Ecology and Fire Management Congress and Fifth Symposium on Fire and Forest Meteorology, Orlando, FL, American Meteorological Society. 12 p. Eyre, F. H., ed. Hickories produce very large amounts of pollen that is dispersed by the wind. In Silvics of forest trees in the United States. Wildlife such as squirrels and chipmunks often bury the seed at some distance from the seed-bearing tree. Borers commonly found on dying or dead hickory trees or cut logs include: Severe damage to hickory lumber and manufactured hickory products is caused by powderpost beetles (Lyctus spp. USDA Forest Service, Eastern Region, Milwaukee, WI. In Seeds of woody plants of the United States. This species occasionally grows to about 30 m (98 ft) tall and 91 cm (36 in) in diameter at breast height (dbh), but heights and diameters usually range from about 15 and 46 to 61 cm (5.9 and 18.1 to 24.0 in), respectively. Cooperative Extension, which staffs local offices in all 100 counties and with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. In the central and southern Appalachians on slopes 25% or less, mockernut hickory grows on fine loams. The European fruit lecanium (Parthnolecanium corni) is common on hickories. Also, this graft seldom produced a tree that bore well or yielded large nuts. 658 p. Jaynes, Richard A. Climatic atlas of the United States. A revised tolerance table. The species is monoecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but both sexes can be found on the same plant) and is pollinated by Wind. A guide to wildlife food habits. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Mockernut is a 64-chromosome species, so rarely crosses with 32-chromosome species such as pecan or shellbark hickory.  The species grows and develops best on deep, fertile soils. The wood makes excellent fuel wood, as well. During the growing season (April through September), annual precipitation varies from 510 to 890 mm (20 to 35 in). Bark of trees is tight and furrowed, and light grey to grey. Proceedings of the Fifty-third Annual Conference, Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. On NameThatPlant.net, plants are shown in different â¦ USDA Forest Service, Research Note NC-272. U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service. True hickories such as mockernut develop a long taproot with few laterals.  These soils are low in nutrients and usually moist, but during the warm season, they are dry part of the time. (2007). Greenwood and bark weights for commercial-size mockernut trees from mixed hardwoods in Georgia are available for total tree and saw-log stems to a 4-inch top for trees 5 to 22 inches d.b.h..

Hickory nuts seldom remain viable in the ground for more than I year. The bark of branches is gray and more smooth, while twigs are gray to grayish brown and relatively stout. Washington, DC. On slopes steeper than 25%, mockernut often grows on coarse loams. Deyrup, M. and L. Deyrup (2012). 716 p. Lutz, John F. 1955. When stored for a year or more, seed may require stratification for only 30 to 60 days. Use in situations where other hickories would be used. The fruit has a thick, four-ribbed husk 3 to 4 mm (0.12 to 0.16 in) thick that usually splits from the middle to the base. True hickories are difficult to reproduce from cuttings. 1974. Mineral streaks and sapsucker-induced streaks also degrade the lumber. Clewell, A. F. (2014). Reproduction is difficult to attain if advance hickory regeneration is inadequate, though; then clearcutting will eliminate hickories except for stump sprouts. For humans, the wood is used for flooring, furniture, baseball bats, tool handles, veneer, and skis. Agriculture Forest Service Agriculture Handbook 654, 1990). Nevertheless, it is identified as an associated species in eight cover types. 1980. Baker, Frederick S. 1949. Those Hickory leaves may have supported up to 200 different species of butterflies and moths as food for their caterpillars, all without any negative â¦ 7b. Mockernut hickory is host to anthracnose (Gnomonia caryae). It recovers rapidly from suppression and is probably a climax species on moist sites. Carya tomentosa NC State University and N.C. A&T State University work in tandem, along with federal, state and local governments, to form a strategic partnership called N.C. symbol: CATO6 Leaf: Alternate, pinnately compound, 9 to 14 inches long, with 7 to 9 serrate, lanceolate to obovate-lanceolate leaflets, rachis is stout and very pubescent, green above and paler below.

Larvae of A. caryivorella may destroy entire nut sets. A straight-growing hickory, a high percentage of its wood is used for products where strength, hardness, and flexibility are needed. Gall insects (Caryomyia spp.) They are also good nesting trees, providing cover for birds with their thick foliage. The leaflets are waxy, medium green, wide and rounded, and grow 7 or more to a rachis. , The consort underwing (Catocala consors) was been found to feed on species in the Carya genus. Washington, DC.

More specifically, the habitats range from mixed hardwood forests, disturbed meadows, in sandy soil of mesic woods, rich deciduous woods, hardwood hammocks, wooded ravines, and loamy sand woodlands. Mockernut hickory requires a minimum of 25 years to reach commercial seed-bearing age. Castanea 78(4): 266-276. Mollisols characteristically form under grass in climates with moderate to high seasonal precipitation. U.S. Department of Commerce, Environmental Data Service, Washington, DC. Thâ¦ Woody plants selected by beavers in the Appalachian Ridge and Valley Province. It is hardy to zone (UK) 4. This feeding combined with insect and disease problems eliminates the annual nut production, except during bumper seed crop years.  In a study of fire exclusion, Clewell found that C. tomentosa thrived in the system to create a shortleaf pine-oak-hickory woodland over 44 years from an original upland pine savanna community. The giant bark aphid (Longistigma caryae) is common on hickory bark. C. tomentosa responds negatively to soil disturbance by agriculture in South Carolina communities, marking it as an indicator for remnant woodlands.. Diseases of forest and shade trees of the United States. Eighth ed. , Trees that are stressed are more susceptible to hickory bark beetle.. The notably tomentose leaflets, rachis and branchlets are characteristic and are the origin of the specific epithet. Germination is hypogeal.

Undersurface of leaves densely covered with soft hairs. It can be used for veneer, but the low supply of logs of veneer quality is a limiting factor. This fungus kills the bark, which produces a canker, causes heart rot and decay, and can seriously degrade the tree.  It serves as a larval host for some moths, including the Luna moth (Actias luna), the funeral dagger (Acronicta funeralis), and the giant regal (Citheronia regalis). It's tolerant of drought but not poor drainage and is best in slightly acidic soil, as it's intolerant of alkaline soils and salt in the soil. Myers, Charles, and David M. Belcher.

Mockernut hickory (Carya tomentosa), also called mockernut, white hickory, whiteheart hickory, hognut, and bullnut, is the most abundant of the hickories.It is long lived, sometimes reaching the age of 500 years. Summaries of some silvical characteristics of several Appalachian hardwood trees. Climate and man. Florida Entomologist 95(3): 711-730. This species is not present in Michigan, New Hampshire and Vermont as previously mapped by Little. Animals help disperse seeds so that new hickories can grow elsewhere. Hickory shuckworm (Laspeyresia caryana) is probably a major factor in reducing germination. 1977. Trunk bark of mature trees is gray to dark gray and relatively coarse, consisting of forking or intertwining ridges that are somewhat irregular. The living-hickory borer (Goes pulcher) feeds on hickory boles and branches throughout the East. coord. Overall it is classified as intolerant of shade. Manning, W. E. 1973.

Hickory seeds show embryo dormancy that can be overcome by stratification in a moist medium at 1 to 4 °C (33° to 40 °F) for 30 to 150 days. Mockernut Hickory (Carya tomentosa) Mockernut hickory trees have thin gray bark with deep narrow furrows. Hickory sawdust, chips, and some solid wood are often used by packing companies to smoke meats; mockernut is the preferred wood for smoking hams. Black bears, foxes, rabbits, beavers, and white-footed mice feed on the nuts, and sometimes the bark. Southeastern Forest Experiment Station, Asheville, NC.
