Black walnuts are a tree that provides great timber value and food value to wildlife. Black walnut trees produce a beautiful dark wood with excellent grain definition used in many kinds of luxury furniture. Black walnut timber is so valuable, more than a few landowners plant black walnut as their retirement plan. Black walnuts produce harvestable timber in 30yrs. An acre of good quality timber can be worth close to one hundred thousand dollars. Some have speculated that planting black walnuts provide about a 14% annual rate of return, beating most investments. We may not be wealth advisors but we can say that black walnuts are a great way to get a sizeable monetary return from your tree planting labors.
Black walnut also provides a great food source for squirrels, foxes, and woodpeckers. Deer may not love these tree's large hard nuts but they still provide food for some often overlooked forest dwellers that are important parts of the ecosystem.
Consider planting black walnuts on your place, it will definitely pay off for your wildlife and it just might pay off for your wallet one day as well.

I have ordered and planted well over 100 trees online from various wildlife tree sellers, including the big name brands, and the trees I just received from Whitetail Hill Chestnuts are the best looking trees I have ever received... EVER! They are easily 2 feet tall and full of big green leaves. They will make a great addition to my deer and turkey hunting property in Oklahoma and I'm sure I will be ordering more!Oklahoma

I ordered trees from Whitetail Hill they shipped my trees July 12 Priority Mail and were scheduled to arrive Thursday July 15th. When they didn't arrive on the 15th I checked the USPS tracking number that I was provided and USPS just kept telling me each day after that they were scheduled to arrive late. I emailed Whitetail Hill on July 19th and got a prompt response from Caleb H. My question to him was that if my trees did arrive what he thinks they would be alive he said there was a good chance that they wouldn't be and that he would do anything he could to help make the order right.
USPS finally delivered my trees on July 22nd. 7 days late on delivery with the box ripped in half. I open the package expecting to find my dead trees since they'd been in a box for 11 days to my surprise the trees were as green as ever. This just goes to show the quality of trees that these guys grow and send to us. I would highly recommend these guys and have already placed another order for more trees.Mount Vernon, Kentucky
