Notes for Identification: Source: black walnut has many uses in the forest products trade, and is often recognized as one of the most valuable of north american hardwoods. It is commonly used for gun stocks, cabinetry, and the creation of both solid and veneered furniture. Unfortunately, its extreme value has contributed to its extirpation in many parts of its range where it was formerly common. The nuts are oily, sweet and quite edible, used most commonly for baking and confections. This large, spreading tree makes an excellent shade and specimen tree throughout its rangewarningthe black walnut tree creates a zone around its roots that is antagonistic to many other plants. It is thought that this is caused by a chemical, juglone, produced by the tree's roots. Actual contact with the roots by other plants is needed for this reaction to occur. It is not harmful to people or other animals. Although the virtues of its large foliage and edible nuts have been previously extolled, these same leaves and nuts can be a nuisance to clean up in the fall, especially if you do not plan on eating the nuts!
