Greetings Bruce:

Each state has their own guidelines and regulations when it comes to Forest Management Plans (a.k.a., Forest Stewardship Plans) -- especially if the landowner is seeking state/federal cost-share assistance and property tax relief.

Therefore, you really need to confer with your local IA-DNR district forester regarding forest management plan details. It also wouldn't hurt to contact your local district forester and ask them for some site-specific recommendations.

If you are interested in some additional resources regarding black walnut, please feel free to visit:
