Soil / Climate: Native to eastern North America, can grow in a wide range of soil types and likes full sun.

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

Cold Stream Farm supplies Black Walnut trees which are grown as bare root seedlings and transplants and sold both wholesale and retail with no minimum order.

    Ordered down in Georgia in the winter, planted in a tree sized pot to build roots before i plant this fall in my yard. Leafing out healthy and happy since February. Bareroot trees that are live and healthy are a treasure, thank you!
