Successful Black Walnut Management Requires Long-Term Commitment
Abstract:Intensive management of both naturally occurring and planted black walnut trees is necessary to meet the requirements of the furniture and other wood product industries for this high-value hardwood. Successful intensive culture of black walnut requires a consideration of the biological requirements of the trees as they relate to soil properties, competing vegetation, thinning or release, and pruning. Growers must understand the need for consistent and periodic cultural activities if they are to realize the objectives of short-rotation, high-quality production forestry. North. J. Appl. For. 4:20-23, March 1987.
