Abstract

Black walnut (Juglans nigra L.) trees are often selectively cut from forested stands based on their phenotype or size. This practice lowers the population density and possibly the genetic diversity of the species. Anecdotal evidence links this practice to an observed decline in the availability of high quality black walnuts.
