Monocultures (single tree type plantations) have been shown extensively to be far more susceptible to disease, rodent and environmental impact. This is why acreages will be cross planted with one or more other varieties of trees that are proven to work well with black walnuts. As well, protective hedgerows of softwoods may be needed as they are very susceptible to cold wind desiccation. These trees can be selected upon speaking with potential clients, as well as planting patterns and best plantation locations. We also offer maintenance contracts for yearly care and pruning and a 5% mortality replacement per acre in the first year for bulk orders.
