Be aware that there are more and more states issuing bans for the transport of green Walnut logs and lumber meaning you cannot transport ANY Juglans species from these states. This primarily infests Claro Walnut (Juglans hindsii) but does affect Juglans regia, Juglans nigra and Juglans cineria
If the east coast is infested by the walnut twig beetle, it will mean the possible demise of quality available walnut lumber much like chestnut.
Penalties will be severe if caught.
This will drive up pricing on Walnut lumber dramatically.
