Concern about Black Walnuts?

Posted by woodrose711 (My Page) on

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.

RE: Concern about Black Walnuts?

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.
