1 Year Old Air Prune Bareroot Seedling 18"-24"+ 

The Butternut is a beautiful canopy tree and the hardiest member of the walnut family in colder climates. This tree produces drooping clusters of sweet nuts which are used in baking and loved by wildlife and humans alike. Easier to grow than Black Walnut in northern areas. It's a good idea to plant more than one tree for proper pollination. Butternuts have become endangered due to a fungus wiping out the majority of native populations. Our seedstock comes from trees planted in British Columbia over 40 years ago. It is important to maintain and increase the diversity of Butternut seedlings to find individuals resistant to the canker fungus.
