Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

Black walnut, scientifically known as Juglans nigra, is a deciduous tree native to North America. Here are some key points about black walnut:

  1. Appearance: Black walnut trees can grow up to 100 feet tall and have a broad, spreading crown. The bark is dark and deeply furrowed, while the leaves are compound and composed of 15 to 23 leaflets.

  2. Wood: Black walnut wood is highly valued for its beautiful grain and rich, dark color. It is commonly used in furniture making, cabinetry, flooring, and other high-end woodworking projects.

  3. Nuts: Black walnuts produce edible nuts that have a strong, distinctive flavor. The nuts are encased in a thick, hard shell that can be challenging to crack. They are often used in baking, cooking, and as a topping for salads and desserts.
