This study was conducted to determine the origin, condition, and significance of a large acreage of black walnut trees located in the northern part of Clark County, Kansas. The study was prompted by the uniqueness in size (approximately 150 acres), development, and geographic location of the walnut trees. A study area of 13.6 acres located in the center of the walnut stand was selected. Ten, one-fifth acre plots were established and measurements of species composition, site quality, tree quality, and growth rates were recorded. The results furnish proof of the excellent performance of walnuts on this site, and support the possibility of a greater utilization of walnuts on selected areas in western Kansas.
