Juglans nigra

Common name: Black Walnut

Native plant

This here is the tree Abe Lincoln used to split! It is one of the most valuable hardwoods used for furniture. Walnut fruit is several inches across and very tasty if you can beat the squirrels to it. This tree grows best in full sun and mesic soil and should grow 18-24 inches per year. Rumors abound that you cannot plant underneath Black Walnut as the roots release toxins that will poison the plants. I am sure that some plants are sensitive, but the vast majority are not.
