Concern about Black Walnuts?

woodrose711May 19, 2010

over the last few years, I've been noticing more and more black walnuts growing in my woods. Should I be concerned about the juglone secretion from the roots/fallen leaves killing off the present flora? at this point, it would be nearly impossible to eradicate them.

My woods is absolutely full of black walnuts, many mature 50 year old trees, with most being in the 20-year old range. No noticeable loss of foliage. In fact I have many ferns and other native plants growing very close to the walnut trees. Since the walnuts are a native species, native plants typical don't have a problem with them. And, when they mature they will be worth a lot of money for logging.

I've always read not to plant mountain laurel within 50 feet of a black walnut tree.
