Are you wondering what's in store for the 2016 hickory season? Looking back at 2015 as being an average year,  this year may be the 'off' year when Hickories are resting and not producing much mast at all.

Hickory trees have a long and colorful history in Wisconsin.  The people who have established the Wisconsin Hickory Association founded this state-wide association to promote knowledge and use of this indigenous tree.

​​​Did you know? Hickory is a versatile tree and was used extensively by Native Americans in the region.  In addition to using the nuts for food and wood for heating and cooking, Native Americans made bows from the saplings and used the inner hickory bark to line birch-bark canoes and to finish baskets.
