Hundreds of black locust and black walnut plantings have been made with variable success. Many were on prairie soil where trees were not native and where tree soil requirements were therefore unknown. This study attempts to divide some plantation soils into simple classes and to correlate site index of these two species with easily recognizable soil properties. The object is to reduce the problem of site evaluation for black locust and black walnut to a set of simple instructions that will increase the proportion of successful plantings.
