Do hickory trees put off much pollen or nectar?

I’ve never heard of hickory trees or walnut being a source of nectar or pollen.  I think they’re mostly wind pollinated, but I could be wrong.

Wind pollinated, no nectar. Some years, though, they can produce honeydew, particularly the pecans.

I don't know nothing much about hickory nuts, but a little honey and some salt goes real well on roasted pea nuts and pecans. :-D :-D
