Northern Shagbark Hickory is found in the northern Appalachians of the United States, normally on upland slopes, frequently in mixed hardwood forest types dominated by oaks. It is distinct from Southern Shagbark Hickory (or “Carolina Shagbark Hickory”) which is a separate species or variety. Its light sapwood and brown heartwood make for distinctive contrasts.
