Oops! That sounds a little xenophobic....I meant buy american hickory (shouldn't have had that last tequila )
There is a very great deal to be said for buying local rather than anything imported. American forests have been repeatedly devastated by invasive species that arrived on wood products from Asia or Europe. Do a little websearch to find out why the city of Worcester, MA no longer has any hardwood trees...then ask yourself if you want that happening in your community, or perhaps across your continent. Buy local grown.
