These Shell Bark hickory trees are grown from seed and are native to much of the USA, especially here in our state of Missouri. They grow delicious hickory nuts that drop in the fall. This hickory tree grows some of the best-tasting hickory nuts there are. This produces the LARGEST hickory nuts out of all the hickory trees. The Shellbark Hickory is a high-branching tree with a straight, slender trunk and a narrow, oblong crown. It's a sturdy tree with shaggy bark. The nuts are large and sweet. The tree will bear nuts in 10-12 years and bears annually.

This is the only place I will buy trees online anymore
For years we have purchased from the large nurseries. Not going to name any... but their customer service always sucks and they don’t take very good care of the plants they send you for lots of money. A year ago I took the chance to buy two trees from the weavers family farm nursery here and was pleasantly surprised. They did a great job packing the tree. The care paper they send with them is helpful, got some tips no one has ever told us before, and their plants are very nice for a very fair price. From now on you have our family’s business! Thanks for caring and doing a great job
We love hickory nuts and always wanted our own hickory nut tree. I really hope it will grow here as we haven’t seen any hickory trees anywhere near us. We are giving it a try though! Planted three from the Weavers Good looking trees
I’m not sure what zone you are in down there but these can handle heat up to zone 8 typically fine. Thanks!
The hickory tree we got was indeed very healthy but it was a little shorter than expected but I should of read the size in description so it was correct size was listed. Anyway still a 4 star purchase. Will return
