Toxic Hickory Nut Trees? Dividing figs...
I have a spindly hickory nut tree that is growing beside a spindly pine on the property line (No on lives on the other side). I have heard that the roots of this tree are toxic for anything to live beside it. A little garden abuts it and it is about 10 feet from my vegetable garden. I would like to remove one of these, and since the little hickory nut is trying it's best beside the pine, i wanted to remove the pine. Hicka nuts as we called them as children, don't they come wrapped in a hard divided outer shell...or is this walnut? Anything I should be worried about. Also I finally got my hubby to dig up the fig just outside the kitchen door and it divided into 5 or six units. Replanted them in diff places around the yard about Oct. 20th. Will they survive?
