Hickory and Pecan are virtually indistinguishable species within the Walnut family of trees. The appearance of Hickory/Pecan sapwood is white and quite often tinged with brown. The heartwood ranges in color from pale brown to brown with red tinges. The heartwood occasionally takes on deeper reddish-brown tones, and is referred to as “red” Hickory. Both the sapwood and heartwood are coarse in texture, usually with a fine, straight grain.
Hickory is the hardest, heaviest and strongest American wood. Known for strength and shock resistance, true Hickories are stronger than Pecan. The heaviness of Hickory/Pecan can make it difficult to machine and glue, and much more difficult to work with hand tools. Hickory/Pecan has a high silica content which can dull cutters. Although Hickory/Pecan holds nails and screws well, pre-boring is recommended to prevent splitting. The wood sands well and offers a handsome appearance with medium to darker stains and bleaching.
