Black Walnut
« on: May 10, 2010, 04:51:28 PM »
We have a variety of trees on our mere 3 acres (located north of Peterborough, Ontario)including many: black cherry, oak, maple plus a variety of soft woods. My questions is, will Black Walnut grow in a sandy type soil. I know that there are negative aspects to this tree but I have a half a dozzen growing thanks the the squirrels. I planted about a dozzen nuts, in selected areas. Well, the squirrrels dug every one of them up. So, I outsmarted them critters. I brought a box full of black walnuts and left them. Well guess what, they were in such a hurry to hide them, that they ended up planting the trees for me.  All I had to do was transplant them to where I wanted them. Go figure.

will Black Walnut grow in a sandy type soil

All of the Black Walnut trees on my property are along creek/ditch banks, which is the sandiest, and loosest soil on the place.  Of course the water spreads the nuts..... ;D

Black walnut does best on the richest soil, usually in coves and such that are well drained but moist.  They do not do as well on the sandy dry sites.
