Black walnuts are very tall, statuesque, shade trees best planted in informal settings. Their wood is prized for furniture building and over-harvesting has caused a serious decline in native populations. They are host plants for over 100 species of butterflies and moths! Plant this tree in full sun where it will have room to grow and falling nuts will not be a problem.
