Wildlife Nut Trees

Two native American nut trees that feed all kinds of wildlife animals and game birds are the hickory trees and the Allegheny chinquapin bushes. The chinquapin nut produces sweet kernels that are intensively attractive to birds, after the chinquapins freely fall from the burr in the autumn. The hickory tree is slow to bear nuts but produces reliable annual quantities of nuts when full maturity is reached.
