The Northern Shagbark Hickory

The main range of shagbark hickory (Carya ovata) ends just north of the St. Lawrence River in eastern North America, zone 5b. Early reports noted the species occasionally in the Ottawa area (zone 5a), but only a small possibly natural group remains here, along the bank of the Ottawa River. However, recently a significant outlying population was discovered in Lavant Township, zone 4b, on a single small site. Preservation of the Lavant genome is being attempted at three sites, one is described below.
