Description

Species is native and highly prized by locals.

Bark is dark with furrows; Leaves are compound and alternate with the last leaflet somewhat smaller than the rest of the leaflets.

A significant portion of the tree seems to be parasitized by some type of web worm (Fall webworm?)

Fruit (Nut) yield is plentiful; fruits themselves have a heavy and pungent but nostalgic scent.

Not likely to have been cultivated, as there are other similar specimens nearby.

Description from Wikipedia

Juglans nigra, the eastern black walnut, a species of flowering tree in the walnut family, Juglandaceae, is native to eastern North America. It grows mostly in riparian zones, from southern Ontario, west to southeast South Dakota, south to Georgia, northern Florida and southwest to central Texas. Isolated wild trees in the upper Ottawa Valley may be an isolated native population or may have derived from planted trees.

No range data available.
