Hickory grows best in eastern North America down through Central America, though a few sub-species can be found in Asia. There are quite a few sub-species, including Southern Shagbark, Bitternut Hickory, and Pignut Hickory, just to name a few. Pecan is also a member of the hickory family. Several of the different varieties produce delicious, edible nuts. Though there are several sub-species, most hickory plank flooring is bundled under 'Hickory' in the marketplace. However, Pecan is often found marketed and sold under its own name.

Why Choose Hickory Flooring? Hickory hardwood is most noted for its striking colors and patterns. The sapwood ranges in color from cream to yellow, and the heartwood may be light brown or reddish brown with color ranges everywhere in-between. The patterns can be strikingly bold or very light and subtle. Often, it is chosen for its next best feature; its pure strength and hardness.
