    H. Clay Smith

    Mockernut hickory (Carya tomentosa), also called  mockernut, white hickory, whiteheart hickory, hognut, and  bullnut, is the most abundant of the hickories. It is long lived,  sometimes reaching the age of 500 years. A high percentage of the  wood is used for products where strength, hardness, and  flexibility are needed. It makes an excellent fuelwood, too.
