The color of hickory lumber can vary from brown to reddish brown. Hickory lumber is generally straight grained, but can be wavy or irregular with a somewhat coarse texture. The characteristic ‘bird pecks’ give Hickory a rustic appearance. Hickory lumber is very hard, stiff, dense and shock resistance and it also has steam bending properties. There are woods that are stronger than Hickory and woods that are harder, but the combination of strength, toughness, hardness and stiffness found in Hickory lumber is not found in any other commercial wood.
Hickory lumber is a naturally beautiful wood that includes six varieties. Shagbark Hickory (Carya ovata), Mockernut Hickory (Carya tomentosa), Pignut Hickory (Carya glabra), Water Hickory (Carya aquatica), Bitternut Hickory (Carya coriformis) and Pecan (Carya illinoensis) are all found in the southern coastal plains in bottomland and some upland sites.
