Black Walnut is a gorgeous tree that you’ll be proud to have providing shade for you. Due to its tendency to have a lack of lower branching it is ideal for the purpose of shading areas in larger landscapes. It’s also praised for its high-quality lumber and is a popular tree to plant as a long-term investment. The fact that it produces large yields of delicious walnuts is certainly a point in its favour too. Whenever a tree boasts as many uses as this one does it’s difficult to avoid planting some.
