Juglans nigra B. S. Walters

Lowland and upland forests, also commonly appearing in fields from nuts planted by squirrels. Probably all records north of the middle of the lower Peninsula are of individuals seeding in from planted trees.

Now rather scarce as large trees, Black Walnuts are valuable for fine lumber as well as nuts.
