Butternut

Ginkgo is medium sized deciduous tree with beautifully fan shaped leaves which develop a clear yellow fall color. Its form is pyramidal, broadening with age and becoming picturesque.

One of the few walnut varieties native to Canada. The wood from this attractive species is used in a lot of specialty products.

A self-fertile nut tree that has better yields when planted near other butternuts. The meat of the Butternut is very mild, sweet, and oily. Often sought after by nut hunters.

Butternut is intolerant of shade and poor draining soil. It can survive zone 2, but reliably produces nuts in zone 3. Butternut canker has decimated this species in its native range.
