Notes: Black walnut tree roots contain juglone, a toxic substance released when the the roots of other juglone-sensitive species come in contact with walnut roots. You must keep a wide separation between the black walnut tree and susceptible plants. Black walnut wood is highly prized for paneling and furniture and the nuts for food. The whole fruit, including the husk, falls in October; the seed is relatively small and very hard. The tree tends to crop more heavily in alternate years.
Wildlife: The nuts are eaten by woodpeckers, foxes, and squirrels
