hickory is hardy from zones 5 to 8 and tolerates total shade.
Also consider one of the hickories--shagbark for rich, well-drained soils, and pignut, shellbark
, or mocker-nut for upland plantings.
The prominent "true" hickories include shagbark hickory, shellbark
hickory, pignut hickory and mockernut hickory.
and sugar maple, in a "red oak--linden transition" that represented slightly improved drainage over wetter phases that included bur oak, shellbark
hickory [Carya laciniosa (Michx.
Thus, in a woodlot dominated by shagbark and shellbark
hickory (Carya laciniosa), and containing a Primary Class I Roost, such as Sodalis Woods, many or most suitable trees probably serve at times as alternate roosts.
Also commercially important is shellbark
hickory (Carya laciniosa) which looks a lot like shagbark, mockernut hickory (Carya tomentosa), and pignut hickory (Carya glabra).
Northern bats used at least eight tree species as roosts: the red oak group (35%), silver maple (24%), pin oak (11%), American elm (11%), cottonwood (8%), honey locust (5%), shagbark hickory (3%) and shellbark
hickory (Carya laciniosa; 3%).

However, with the added pressure of browsing, valuable but less dominant components of bottomland forests, such as swamp white oak and shellbark
hickory (Carya laciniosa) can likely be eliminated and plant biotic diversity in general can be reduced.
Joining this forest mosaic at sites with prolonged, but not continuous, standing water, are communities of such characteristic species as silver maple, cottonwood, sycamore, green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica Marshall), overcup oak (Quercus lyrata Walter), pecan, shellbark
hickory (Carya laciniosa (Michx.
2002) found that Cerulean Warblers in Illinois showed the strongest preference for shellbark
hickory (Carya laciniosa) and bitternut hickory (Carya cordiformis).
Koch), also known as shellbark
hickory, scalybark hickory and upland hickory.
According to Wilhelm (1990), the following plants are typical of wet flood plain forest: Acer saccharinum (silver maple), Cardamine bulbosa (smooth spring cress), Carex amphibola turgida (gray sedge), Carya laciniosa (big shellbark
hickory), chaerophyllum procumbens (wild chevil), Floerkea proserpinacoides (false mermaid), Fraxinus pennsylvanica (green ash), Populus deltoides (cottonwood), Salix nigra (black willow), and Viola striata (striped white violet).

This periodic flooding with slow drying provides a richly diverse overstory of mixed hardwoods: shellbark
hickory, pecan, slippery elm, sweetgum, hackberry, persimmon, pawpaw, possumhaw, blue beech, pumpkin ash, and the great oaks: bur, Shumard, overcup, and swamp chestnut.
