82 Loblolly Pine-Hardwood • I'll square them up with a Granberg mini mill and set the base in concrete (in 5-gal buckets for sonotube substitutes). These species are rated as intermediate in nitrogen deficiency tolerance and consequently are able to grow with lower levels of nitrogen than are required by "nitrogen- demanding" white ash (Fraxinus americana), yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), and American basswood (Tilia americana). 64 p. Bonner, F. T., and L. C. Maisenhelder. Hickory. Since hickories constitute 15 percent or less of the basal area of oak-hickory forest types, most growth and yield information is written in terms of oak rather than oak-hickory. Growth and yield predictions for upland oak stands 10 years after initial thinning. The Pignut Hickory (Carya glabra) is a medium to large, deciduous tree with a straight trunk and rounded crown that typically grows 50-80’ tall. Control consists of felling infested trees and destroying the bark during winter months or storing infested logs in ponds. U.S. Department of Agriculture, Miscellaneous Publication 1175. White oak, red maple (Acer rubrum), and sugar maple are subdominant species. Major leaf diseases are anthracnose (Gnomonia caryae) and mildew (Microstroma juglandis). Throughout its range, precipitation is rated adequate during all seasons. A single trunk canker near the base is a sign that the butt log is badly infected, and multiple cankers are evidence that the entire tree may be a cull.

Images are provided in galleries and are available by common name, scientific name, family, ecosystem, and wetland indicator status. The leaves are compound, having five to seven leaflets. Locally, hickories may make up to 20 to 30 percent of stand basal area, particularly in slope and cove forests below the escarpment of the Cumberland Plateau (23) and in second-growth forests in the Cumberland Mountains, especially on benches (14). The taproot develops early, which may explain the slow growth of seedling shoots. U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agriculture Handbook 386. Louisiana Plant ID is an online resource for images and descrptions of Louisiana plants and ecosystems. Carya glabra var. Although most silvicultural systems when applied to oak types will maintain a hardwood forest, the cutting methods used affects the rapidity with which other species may replace the oaks and hickories (17,18,26). 55 Northern Red Oak Root sprouts also are vigorous and probably more numerous than stump sprouts in cut-over areas. C. ovalis (Wangenh.) Carya Nutt. 1970. This pignut hickory's accrescent inner bud scales are about two inches long. 1977.

The growing season varies by latitude and elevation from 140 to 300 days. Pignut hickory responds to increases in soil nitrogen similarly to American beech (Fagus grandifolia), sugar maple (Acer saccharum), and blackgum (Nyssa sylvatica) (15). This site is the most xeric habitat on the mountain because of high insolation, 70 percent slopes, and medium- to coarse-textured soils derived from Clinch sandstone. USDA Forest Service, Hickory Task Force Report 3. The bark is relatively thin, grayish, and divided into interlacing ridges. The hickory shuckworm (Laspeyresia caryana) can seriously reduce germination. Black Rock Forest Bulletin 11.
