Black Walnut Tree

Have you been thinking about planting the black walnut tree in your home but haven’t been confident enough to start? Or are you a landscaper looking to get more information about the black walnut tree to make a critical decision? If so, then you came to the right place!

Also referred to as the American walnut tree, the black walnut tree is a unique tree that grows up to 150 feet tall. It has a characteristic straight trunk and a broadly rounded crown. As you may already know, this tree is highly sought after for its immense beauty and high-quality wood. In North America, it is considered one of the most valuable and scenic native trees.

Early settlers adored the black walnut tree. Besides using its decay-resistant heartwood as fence posts, shingles and poles, they often snacked on its nutritious walnuts directly or used it in stews and soups. Others even ground the nuts to make bread. A shade tree during summer and a work of art during autumn

 Regardless of your landscape, the black walnut tree makes the perfect shade tree.

I mentioned that they could grow up to 150 feet tall. They are also typically very wide and rich in broad-spreading canopy comprising heavy branches. Their large, deeply furrowed foliage that often resembles ferns and their exceptionally sagging catkins offer a striking, airy shade for life below the tree during hot summer afternoons. 

 When autumn arrives, the tree becomes a magnificent work of art, as the leaves turn bright yellow and contrast beautifully with the rough, dark bark of the tree. If this is not the ultimate enhancer to a yard’s aesthetic beauty, I don’t know what is! So, how and where does the black walnut tree grow ideally?  A black walnut tree can indeed last for about 300 years. However, for it to grow well and live that long, the conditions have to be right.

 This unique tree does best grown in areas with deep, fertile, and well-drained but moist loam soil. Silt loam, silt clay loam, sandy loam, and loam are the ideal soil textures that you should keep in mind.

The best site to grow this tree is one that is either facing East or North. The area should also be able to offer full accessibility to sunlight and air. That means that you should avoid the valleys and other bottom-land areas where airflow is limited to prevent possible frost damage.

What you need to keep in mind before growing your black walnut

When you’re ready to grow a black walnut tree, you should either buy a tree or acquire a healthy seedling from a reliable source. You can also try germinating your seedlings if you want to. All you need is to gather the nuts, remove the husks, and plant them about four inches apart in a beautiful cluster. They should be about 4 to 5 inches deep. Cover the area with a cloth and securely pin it into the ground. After that, place a layer of leaves and straw over the fabric to avoid thawing and freezing.

 All you’ll need to do from there is remove the cloth and mulch in late winter. The seeds will have germinated in spring. After a couple of months, select the best trees and plant them in designated spaces. 

The best thing about a black walnut tree is that it is effortless and straightforward to care for. While you should ensure they are well watered, these trees typically have a deep taproot, which makes them quite resistant to aridity.

 In other words, as long as you follow the steps as stipulated here, you’ll be well on your way to having a stunningly adorned landscape in no time!

 Remember, you don’t have to go through the hassle unless you want to. Buy a healthy black walnut tree from our Perennial Wholesale Nursery.
