Nature Close to Home Dave Woehr Shares about the Bitternut Hickory found In Lebanon's Miller Park
LEBANON, OH -- A Bitternut Hickory was found loaded with nuts in a remote corner of Miller Ecological Park along the Cedar Loop Trail.
The species is so named because of the bitter taste of the nut making it undesirable to humans and wildlife alike. However, the wood of the tree is readily used to smoke meat due to the delectable flavor in imparts. Squirrels much prefer to eat the nuts of the Shagbark Hickory because of its much sweeter nutmeat.
