Hickory / Pecan

Botanical Name:

Carya spp


North America and Mexico

Also known as: 

Pecan Hickory, Bitter Pecan, Sweet Pecan, Nogal Morado, Nuez Encarcelada, (Mexico)

While strictly speaking they are different wood species, Hickory and Pecan are very similar and often mixed by flooring mills. Hickory/Pecan has a light tan yellow color with pinkish tones, and fine brown lines. Its grain is open, and occasionally wavy or irregular. This specie is a favorite among log cabin owners since it exhibits a more rustic and less uniform look. Compared to other North American species, Hickory/Pecan is significantly harder and more resistant to traffic.
