|Commercial walnut orchards in California use black walnut(Juglans nigra) and claro walnut(Juglans hindsii) as a rootstock for the highly prized nuts produced by the English walnut tree(Juglans regia). English walnut trees in California live longer and yield more nuts when grafted. The photo on the right displays two grafted walnut trees. The tree on the left has been grafted at approximately 7 feet, while the tree on the right has been grafted just above ground level. The picture on the left displays two sequentially sawn grafted slabs harvested from a 75 year old walnut orchard log. The slabs are almost a 50/50 mix of English and Claro.|
Examples of grafted California walnut trees.
The photo on the left is an example of sequentially sawn grafted slabs. They each measure 52" tall by 24" wide by 2 3/4" thick.
