Black Walnut Trees
« on: September 14, 2004, 02:33:59 PM »

    I have 6 mature Black Walnut trees on my property that I'm looking to have removed. I'd hate to have them destroyed when I hear they make great furniture.  I would rather sell them to a mill or something but I don't know how to about it any ideas would be very helpful, Thank you.

Welcome to the forum.
Can you post a pic?  Describe the trees, as to size (usually diameter at about 4 1/2 feet) and height to the first limb or indicator of a limb (as evidence of the overgrown bark).  

On a city lot? In a woods?  Lone trees or is this in a forest of ? size?

Any local forester (state or county or private).
