Red Hickory is a very rare species in Canada. Its hardiness is not very well established and that is why we have to conduct tests in Quebec, to see if this hickory can survive within the borders of the province... It's said of him that it would be the most " Montagnard " of all hickories, which could lead us to believe that it could probably survive to the Quebec winters... Indeed, the climate is always more arid and colder in mountainous areas.

This tree doesn't reach large dimensions and doesn't grow very quickly. It's therefore appropriate to plant where space is rather limited. It requires a dry, well drained soil.

The kernel produced by this tree is very bitter and wouldn't be edible.
