Non-Native Pest that Attacks Walnut
« on: September 08, 2016, 01:57:19 pm »
Hi everyone,
  I'm planning to plant about 50 or so walnuts for another generation, (:)) but my brother has heard of an invasive that attacks walnuts. Does anyone have any information?

I'm not sure if he's talking about thousand canker disease,but this is starting to show up in some eastern states.

I'm about an hour and a half from Knoxville. This sounds like the one my brother was talking about. That is very bad.
Walnut wood is very expensive.
