The following is an update of a disease that is fatal to Black Walnut trees. Depending on the spread of the disease, Black Walnut may be somewhat scarcer and more spendy.

Start planting as well as cutting and don’t trust the sawyers to do it for you. I’ve got a couple of European chestnuts going in the ground tomorrow and already planted a cherry, maybe I’ll look into a couple black walnuts next year.

Derosa … you have a point
we have a law here in Denmark that says if they cut down a tree in the forrests they have to plant a new
maybee we shuold have it for the gardens also …. :-) and make the law so they have to plant one of the more
rare spicies too ….. so cut one plant two .-)
