DescriptionNot all black walnut trees grow in the forest. Many are found in open places - along fence rows, in pastures, in narrow wooded strips. Trees in places like this are not counted in the forest surveys made by the U. S. Forest Service to find out how much timber we have. Yet such trees are part of our overall black walnut resource. The U.S.D.A. Forest Service undertook a study to find out how much black walnut (Juglans nigra L.) timber there is in these nonforest areas. The study was made in Kentucky for two reasons. First, because Kentucky produces a lot of black walnut. Second, because a forest survey had recently been completed there. The results of this study, supplementing the data collected in the forest survey, give us a more complete estimate of the total black walnut resource of Kentucky.
