DescriptionGrowth and yield of plantation grown black walnut depends upon the site productivity and management practices such as vegetation control and thinning. Growth and yield information for all the various combinations of sites and management practices is not available; however, there is some information from unmanaged plantations which provides reasonable estimates. The following graphs relate directly to plantations established with site preparation and weed control the first 2 or 3 years, but no additional management.
