Is this tree deer resistant?
Burma S on Aug 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have only had ours planted for almost a year. No problem with any animals yet.
Do English walnuts inhibit plant growth under them, like black walnuts do?
Paul G on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All trees of the walnut family icluding hickories, pecan, black and English walnuts secrete similar compounds into soil by their root system. Additonally, some of these compounds are extracted from the walnut leaves in the fall and during the winter time, if there is no removal of the leaves done on a regular basis. All these compounds inhibt significantly the growth of grass and other weeds beneath and around walnut trees. I have no experience in comparison with black walnut trees myself, but in general all my older English walnut trees, 20 yrs plus, show this kind of inhibition of growth under and around them. Best regards, Christoph
Is stark champion English walnut a self pollinator?
Justin S on Sep 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it is not. It requires a different English walnut variety, like Lake English, to pollinate and produce.
I have a single english walnut tree now about 8' high. I need another one for pollination. What is my best method of this? are there male and female trees?
Nate W on Mar 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Do you know the variety of the tree you already have? It's not really a matter of "male" and "female" trees; walnuts have male and female flowers on the same tree, but need another variety nearby to pollinate. Lake English is a great choice.

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.
