Brandon Elm
Black Walnut

Brandon Elm is a hardy and adaptable tree. Its dark green foliage turns brilliant gold in the fall.

This cultivar of the American Elm is long-lived and fast growing. Due to its smaller and more compact form than its cousin, the American Elm, Brandon Elm it is often preferred for home landscapes where it can command the extra money required to propagate it.

TreeTime.ca has no plans to produce this tree in the near future.

The Black Walnut is a slow growing, large, straight-stemmed tree with an open crown. It produces dense, very hard, edible nuts.

Black Walnut has a deeply-furrowed, black bark. Its leaves are about 1 foot long, composed of 15 - 23 slightly stalked leaflets on a moderately stout stock which provide good dappled shade.

Despite being highly valued for its edible nuts and its shade tree aesthetics, it is rare to see this tree on the prairies.

Note: Black Walnut's roots produce a substance named juglone that is toxic to some other plants. Consider this when choosing where you plant a black walnut, as you will not be able to grow tomato, potato, cabbage, eggplant, blueberry, azalea, rhododendron, lilac, red pine and apple in the surrounding area.

Note: plant this tree once. It will not respond well to transplanting.

Note: Although self-pollinating, planting two trees significantly improves nut production.
