Walnut tree question.

I purchased 12 acres a couple of years ago and built my house on it. I have a HUGE walnut tree out in the field, that we have made our bonfire-picnic-party-playhouse-shadetree-tireswing-climbing rope area. Since we were interested in the property, it produced nuts for 3 years. last year it did not, this year it did not. I have been told by the family of the old farm that the tree is between 150 -175 yrs old. Does a walnut tree stop producing nuts? it still looks great and healthy, not many dead limbs and still has leaves.

Where are my nuts?????

A late frost may have nipped the blossoms.

Maybe they have to pollinate and somebody cut down its mate or the bees got lost or something. :)

I would suggest that you find out who the state forester is for your county. Call him and have him look at it - he is a state employee so you are paying his salery for him to do just that.

150 years old!?!?! If that tree is solid inside (sometimes they look solid and are not) that is a VALUABLE tree!! Especially if there is over 8 feet of straight trunk - that is a veneer log, much sought after.

Regards,
Larry

Boy, that last question you really left yourself open. Well, enough about that.
Black walnut trees do NOT produce walnuts every year. Why? I've no idea. Might try a search on the net and get a better answer.

Sometimes it feels like nuts, sometimes not.
