An excellent shade tree for large properties, Black Walnut should be sited with care, as it emits a chemical that is toxic to some other plants. Its wood is valuable for furniture and paneling. In October, the whole fruit including the yellow-green husk falls, and the edible nuts are a food source for both squirrels and people. Needs full sun and prefers alkaline, moist, well-drained soil.
