The stated weight (kg/m3) is measured with a moisture percentage of approx.12%. Hackberry is a member of the elm family. There is a little difference between the sapwood and heartwood which is yellowish grey to light brown with yellow streaks. American Hackberry is rated as non-resistant to heartwood decay and susceptible to discoloration and insect attacks. The heartwood is moderately resistant to preservative treatment but the sapwood is permeable. Hackberry is moderately hard, heavy and has medium bending strength, high shock resistance but is low in stiffness. It has a good steam bending classification. Working with American White Ash produces generally good results. Common hackberry is used for furniture and kitchen cabinets, internal joinery, doors and mouldings. It is also used as a substitute for ash.

 

Interesting facts

* Hackberry bears many similarities to American White Ash based on anatoms, however it is closest to the elm (Ulmus ssp.) because of its pores are arranged in wavy tegential bands, which is characteristic of the Elms family.
