That's good Tahir. I must admit that I don't know a lot about them, but thought they took a long time to reach real cropping age. We have one in the wood; I think it was planted as an ash tree, and not really sure even now if it is a walnut. No nuts as far too overshadowed. Was there when we got the wood and someone put it and some other young trees there either as mitigation for felling some very mature oaks or in the mistaken idea that it was good to plant trees in a wood. Most have of course died as overshadowed and planted in all the wrong places.

This little plot has gone on the back burner for a while. (As usual, I have picked the worst possible time to become less self reliant!)
