The Bitternut Hickory often found with the Sugar Maple in old forests that cover the regions of Outaouais, Montérégie and Montreal. Like all other hickories, it's a member of the walnut family (Juglandaceae). This species of hickory is the only Canadian species to be part of the pecan-hickory group (which produces the famous pecan). It's said that hickory nuts are not edible, but in fact, they would be. By cons, they are rather bitter...

This tree is a very interesting ornemental plant. The bark, leaves and tree in general remind White Ash. Its fruits are a good source of food for many animals like squirrels and large birds.

In addition of being one of our noble species, the Bitternut Hickory is a long-lived tree. It also has a high quality wood.
