I am not a forester by trade but I have had a Tree Farm for over 35 years.  Here in Ohio soils change quickly and as long as you do not plant your saplings in an extreme area either too dry or too wet you will be fine.  Prepare your planting holes now and cover them to prevent hard freezing.  Sapling size depends on how much root system you can move with the sapling, more root system the better.  You can move saplings all winter as long if we do not have a hard freeze.

I might try it anyway. I might clear a acre or so and use the nuts from my yard and see what happens.

I don't have native walnut, but I have been planting butternut seed for years. They have high germination rate. Here is one this fall I videoed (pale green leaves) when I was doing same during the full color of fall. Hares don't bother them much but moose will fight with them sometimes. :D

Move'n on.
