Got walnuts to share?

October 05, 2004

If you have one or more black walnut trees in your yard, and don't know what to do with all the walnuts that drop each fall, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources - Forest Service could use your help.

Contact the agency's Washington County office at 301-791-4010 if you can provide at least one bushel of walnuts to the State Nursery.

Walnuts should be in a container like a plastic bag or a box. The office will accept them until Oct. 31.

The walnuts will be used to produce seedlings to plant in Maryland.

Every year, about 6 million tree seedlings are grown at the John S. Ayton State Tree Nursery near the town of Preston in Caroline County.

Many seedlings are planted along streams as part of the state's Stream ReLeaf buffer planting program, and will help improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay, DNR said in a news release.
