LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - New research confirms that black walnut trees can be raised successfully in southeast Nebraska for their wood.

The Nebraska Forest Service recently published a technical report with observations from 25 to 45 years of growing walnut trees in the state.

Forester Dennis Adams says walnut trees’ success depends on climate, soil type and other factors. So anyone considering growing walnut trees should consult a local forester to determine whether the trees would thrive.
