Classic Walnut Tree

Whether for Taste or Timber, Black Walnut Trees have it all

Can't decide between a tree known for its fine wood and a fruit bearing tree with a healthy harvest?

The Black Walnut will give you all that and more. A wide-branched tree reaching heights between 70 and 150 feet, the Black Walnut does well in open fields, on sloped land and a diversity of planting sites so long as the soil is well drained and nutrient dense.

The beautiful dark brown color of its bark makes black walnut wood the most sought after wood in the world. The tree's nickname, 'American Walnut' is no fluke. Our forefathers adorned their homes, crafted barns and built fences with wood made from the black walnut. The leaflets, as large as some trees leaves, are dwarfed by the leaves themselves, which can grow up to a mammoth two feet long. And let's not forget the nut.

The thick, black husk that gives the tree its name serves as ample protection for a round, savory fruit packed with flavor. The tree yields a nut so rich and delicious, it can be enjoyed right out of the shell, baked in deserts or crushed and topped on your favorite ice cream. With an abundant autumn harvest, a single tree can produce hundreds of nuts in just one season.

How to Keep your Black Walnut Healthy

The main thing to remember when caring for your Black Walnut tree is to keep weeds and grasses under control in the planting area because they will limit walnut growth. For quality wood production and to maximize walnut yields, use corrective and clear stem pruning methods. Fertilizer containing trace amounts of zinc aids in fruit growth and can be applied every other year. To help ensure branch health, don't pick nuts directly from the tree. Simply shake the branches up and down and enjoy a healthy shower of delicious nuts for many years to come.





Black Walnut Pollination

Black Walnut are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Black Walnut will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Holding its own so far
It's been an abnormally dry July-Sept. I've had to water the tree to help it survive, which it is doing. Leaves are staying green, but no new ones. With cooler weather coming it has a chance.
The jury's out at this time.

1st one was dead They sent replacent Worse than the 1st
I was sent a dead tree from the start If you scraped the bark No green The y replaced it .
The replacement they sent was not even a bare root tree. It was thrown in a pot with no roots just so they could say it was potted Completely dead no green under the bark . This time of year all trees at least have buds . Nothing but a dead tree

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Black Walnut



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Black Walnut.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Black Walnut gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Black Walnut again after the transplant is complete.

A tree that a lot of home owners ignore. This is a beautiful branching tree. The walnuts are delicious and they even have medicinal properties. Yes the tree competes with other plants and trees so plant accordingly. Timber wise (no intention of cutting them down) these hold the most value. Very sought after wood for fine furniture.
