Black Walnut Tree (juglans nigra)

The Black Walnut Tree, scientifically known as Juglans nigra, stands as a testament to the richness of nature. Often towering up to 70 feet or more, these majestic trees originate from the eastern regions of North America and are renowned for their robust health and resilience against common tree diseases.

Introduced centuries ago, the Black Walnut Tree is not only known for its valuable hardwood but is also celebrated for its lush, green canopy that brings elegance to any landscape. This verdant foliage offers ample shade, making it a popular choice for parks and large gardens. Beneath its shade, certain plants may struggle due to the tree’s allelopathic properties, which can inhibit the growth of certain other plants.

Buartnuts – Juglans x bixbyi

This Buartnuts tree is a cross between a japanese heartnut and a butternut tree. Growing to a height of 50 feet in some cases, the parent plants are healthy specimans and with no diesease.

The Heartnut was introduced from Japan over 100 years ago and is now recognised as one of the best ornamentals of the nut tree species. With it’s luxurious, almost tropical foilage, the buartnut provides a dense shade, yet grass still grows under it.

Buartnuts, along with other members of the japanese walnut species, thrives in both clay and sandy soils.
Nut tree experts describe it as a “veritable goat in it’s feeding habits, making it a rapid grower.”
