Hi John:

Thanks for reaching out to UI Extension Forestry!

As a general rule, I try to avoid providing site-specific forest management recommendations -- especially when it comes to black walnut management.

Therefore, my best advice to you is to contact a local Iowa DNR forester or a local Iowa consulting forester for an on-site property visit with site-specific management recommendations.

Iowa DNR Forestry:

Best of luck!
