Hickory, Mockernut — 0-079

Tree Description: 

.0-079 This mockernut hickory (Carya tomentosa) is one of the original trees of Oak Ridge and has been here since before the cemetery was founded. It colors brilliantly in early autumn.  Compare it with the two large shagbark hickories nearby to the north and west to see differences in the nuts, the buds, and the leaves.
