Excerpt from The Painted Hickory Borer The hickory is one of the most important of our American hardwoods, not only on account of its fruit, but especially because of the valuable qualities of its wood. Tough as hickory is not only a familiar expres sion but an apt phrase as well, for its wood is heavy, hard, strong, and exceedingly tough. It is on account of these qualities that, more than any other wood, hickory is used in the manufacture of such commodities as are subject to excessive strain. Consequently, more than one-half of the hickory cut today is used in the construction of vehicles or their parts, and at least one-third is made into handles for articles in which strength and toughness are the main considerations. In addition to these, agri cultural implements consume three per cent of the entire cut, while the remaining five per cent is used in the manufacture of athletic goods, porch furniture, and various other commodities. The factory uses of hickory as given by Kellogg may be summarized in percentage as follows. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
