    Default The QJoint Tree ID Threads: Hickory and Pecan

    The intent of this thread is to help our users and guests identify and become more familiar with the trees used in BBQ and smoking by posting pictures of the leaves, the bark, the fruit and the flowers of each tree.
    The Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation at Virginia Tech has given us permission to post pictures from their VT Tree ID website-

    The tree ID page for hard woods is here-

    Notes on using the VT Tree ID page-
    The trees are listed by their scientific names first and their common names second so be patient if you are looking for a particular tree and don't find it right away.
    I am providing a link back to the VT site for each species so you can view all the information that they provide on each species. The link takes you to a "flash card" with all the pertinent information about that particular tree. In addition there are links to similar trees in the same genus or family so you can easily cross reference and compare similar trees.
    Hickory and Pecan are listed under the Family heading "Juglandaceae" on the VT website.
    As a friendly reminder, these pictures from the Virginia Tech site are copywritten by Virginia Tech and should not be reposted to another site for public display without permission from The Dendrology Dept. at VT.
