Black Walnut Trees Buyer's Guide

From which tree can you get furniture, shade, oil, and cookies… all made in the USA? A black walnut tree! Native to North America, black walnut trees (Juglans regia) are a versatile resource to natural habitats and backyards. Known for excellent lumber and nutritious nuts, black walnut trees are also enjoyed as domestic shade trees. Culinary oil is made from pressing the nuts, and who doesn’t enjoy a homemade chocolate-chip/walnut cookie?
