This pignut hickory's accrescent inner bud scales are about two inches long. Growth and yield predictions for upland oak stands 10 years after initial thinning. The deciduous, 8- to 12-inch long leaves create a coarse, oval canopy, and the strong but irregularly spaced branches resist breakage in storms, making it useful as a shade tree. The principal difference is in the husk of the fruit, opening late and only partly, or remaining closed in C. glabra but promptly splitting to the base in C. ovalis.
