Description

A large deciduous tree attaining heights of 25?35 m, and a trunk up to 2 m diameter, commonly with a short trunk and broad crown, though taller and narrower in dense forest competition. It is a light-demanding species, requiring full sun to grow well.

The bark is smooth, olive-brown when young and silvery-grey on older branches, with scattered broad fissures with a rougher texture. Like all walnuts, the pith of the twigs contains air spaces, the chambered pith brownish in colour. The leaves are alternately arranged, 25-40 cm long, odd-pinnate with 5?9 leaflets, paired alternately with one terminal leaflet. The largest leaflets the three at the apex, 10?18 cm long and 6?8 cm broad; the basal pair of leaflets much smaller, 5?8 cm long, the margins of the leaflets entire. The male flowers are in drooping catkins 5?10 cm long, the female flowers terminal, in clusters of two to five, ripening in the autumn into a fruit with a green, semi-fleshy husk and a brown corrugated nut. The whole fruit, including the husk, falls in autumn; the seed is large, with a relatively thin shell, and edible, with a rich flavour.

    First let me say the delivery times are spot on - delivery is within a couple of working days and very organised and efficient, esp considering it is free.
    The first tree we were sent was far too tall for the packaging (advertised as 4-5ft but tree was nearly 7ft from the top of the base!). I contacted Beechwoods who resolved the matter and a replacement tree was sent which arrived a few days later and was as we had ordered - very pleased with the tree and the person we gifted it to were also happy.
