BLACK WALNUT:
Juglans is a plant genus of the family Juglandaceae, the seeds of which are known as Walnuts.  The 21 species in the genus range across the north temperate Old World from southeast Europe east to Japan, and more widely in the New World from southeast Canada west to California and south to Argentina.  The trivial name walnut derives from Old English wealhhnutu, literally ‘foreign nut,’ with wealh meaning ‘foreign.’  The walnut was so called because it was introduced from Gaul and Italy.  The Latin name for the Walnut was nux Gallica, Gallic nut.
   The two most commercially important species are Juglans Regia for timber and nuts, and Juglans Nigra for timber.  Both species have similar cultivation 
Requirements and are widely grown in temperate zones.  
   The common walnut and black walnut and it’s allies, are important for their attractive timber, which is hard, dense tight-grained and polishes to a very smooth finish.  The color ranges from creamy white in the sapwood to a dark choclate colour in the heartwood.  When kiln-dried, walnut wood tends toward a dull brown color, but when air-dried can become a rich purplish-brown.  Because of it’s color, hardness and grain, it is a prized furniture and carving wood.  Walnut burls are commonly used to create bowls and other turned pieces.  Walnut wood has been the timber of choice for gun makers for centuries.
