I chose this to plant for future generations of woodworkers. I am enjoying working with black walnut that was passed down to me. It's my turn to pay forward.

I ordered ten of these because they are easier to crack than the wild black walnuts I find around here. Black walnuts are tops in taste and produce excellent timber. I also ordered one of each of your grafted type for the same reason.

Does anyone know how deep to plant a black walnut seedling? The 'crown' is curved above the tap root and I need to know if it remains above soil level or below the soil. I thought the curved crown was suppose to stay above ground, but not sure. PLEASE HELP!
Linda P on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I always plant them below the ground and have had great success doing it. I have some seedlings I planted 15 years ago and they are now at least 20 feet tall.
Is this the type of walnut which is extremely hard to crack open?
Gail D on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not too hard to crack when you let your car tires run over them for hull removal. Patience is the key. Once the hulls have dried (they green hull blackens as it dries out) and rubs off under your tire wheels) and rubbed off, then it's time to crack open the shell. My dad gave me a long handled countertop vice but cracker. Does not require a lot of strength at all to crack open each nut. A hammer and a brick work well too! Then picking out the nutmeats begins...again patience is required. It's a process but so worth it!
Is this tree pollinated by a Carpathian Walnut Tree? What are its known pollinator trees? Thank you!
Jenise C on May 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These seedlings, which are often purchased together (mostly for lumber in lieu of nut production), will cross-pollinate one another. Black walnut trees are partially self-fertile, but will develop fuller kernels if cross-pollinated. If the Carpathian trees shed pollen at the same time the black walnut seedlings are receptive to it in your location, then they should work together. However, it may be more reliable to stick with another black walnut tree for cross-pollination. It's also important to know that wind is responsible for carrying the pollen between trees, so the pollinator tree can be much further away (beyond even a quarter mile) from your tree and still do the trick as long as the bloom times overlap.

Excellent
Planted the trees last year and all 10 of them are doing beautifully. I am very satisfied with there trees. Only problem is the local deer must like the taste of them. I have to keep a fence around them till they get bigger or the deer would eat them.

Black Walnut in Ohio Coshocton County
I planted the black walnut seedlings (Stark's) in 2015 on raised beds, on Westmoreland silt loam soil in two locations near the woods applied pelleted lime 19-19-19 fertilizer plus some with compost plus wire for deer. Weed control was Gramoxone. One tree was damaged by Gramoxone and one tree was heavily damaged by deer. This area has either the highest or second highest deer kill in the state. Three trees did not have a four ft.. wire surrounding them. In 2016 weed control and fertilizer will be applied by June 1. I am comparing these newly planted trees to growth from newly cut trees in the fall of 2014.
Over all trees look goof for 2016.

1 out of 3 lived
Seedlings that lived look good. KS weather is extreme. We go from wet to dry. I planted 3 to hole and have one in each that survived the fall and winter so I am happy. The birds have already claimed them so hopefully they will grow and live to be old trees.
