Is this tree deer resistant?
Burma S on Aug 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine are planted in openings in the woods where a large tree has fallen making an opening. I pretty much have to cage everything I put out. If they don'd browse it, they are likely to horn it in years Two to Five. They do eat the butternuts as they got to them before I caged them. Happily the trees were healthy enough to stand the "pruning."

Healthy and fast growing.
I have used Stark Brother's English Walnut and pecan trees for years. When I moved to Mt. Washington, KY three years ago - to our new home - I ordered three English Walnuts. The trees are thriving, one already about four feet tall. All are fully leaved and healthy. Back home, my Stark trees are all healthy and produce lots of pecans and walnuts, which we miss. However, in about three years might have a few English nuts from my young trees.

Too soon to tell
The plant looks fine and came through a mild Maine winter just fine. But it is too soon to tell how it will do for the longer haul because this is just year number 2. A neighbor nearby who recommended it is having very good luck and getting plenty of nuts from his 5-6 year old tree, so that is what I look forward to.

Too soon to tell
Planted this one year ago along with another walnut. It made it through the winter while the other walnut died. It will be years before I really know anything. I guess the saying, " the best time to plant a tree is ten years ago", is true.
