Carya cordiformis

A large deciduous tree, closely related to the pecan but without edible nuts. Bitternut hickory seeds are eaten by rabbits, and both its seeds and bark are eaten by other wildlife.

UPDATE Jan 12 - We originally advertised these as 18-24" for $8 each, but the nursery had to downgrade their size, so they will be 12-18" and $6 each. Bulk pricing is also adjusted.
