If you want to dodge some missiles. Trying getting out of the way of a squirrel dropping green pine cones out of the top of a 100 hundred foot tall ponderosa pine. Ouch!! So, I guess you could say that I do have nut trees nearby, if you count pine nuts, thousands of them.

That I'm aware of, the only nut trees around here are some Black Walnut trees. Of course, I grew up in OK, so I'm used to Black Walnuts, Pecans, and Hickory trees. We may have some Hickories around here, but I haven't looked.

As a kid, I remember gathering Hickory nuts and pecans, and using a hammer and something to pick the meats out with, and cracking the nuts I gathered. Sometimes, if I didn't have a hammer, a rock would do.

Allen, We used to do that with macadamia nuts when we were little.
