Help Identifying Bitternut Hickory vs Black Walnut sapplings
A few years ago in the fall I tilled 3 rows on a small lot and buried Black Walnuts and Bitternut Hickory nuts together. To my surprised I got 3 rows filled with saplings but I canÃ¯Â¿Â½t tell if any are Hickory. I need to thin the saplings out and would like to save as many Hickories trees as possible. To me the trees mostly look like the Walnut saplings that pop up in our regular landscaping. Can someone point me to a good reference or let me know the distinct characteristics. I think I have all Walnuts but not sure.
I really didnÃ¯Â¿Â½t think IÃ¯Â¿Â½d get so many trees as the squirrels were busy digging as soon as I left.
