Southern Maryland Residents Asked to Donate Black Walnuts
The DNR Forest Service will be collecting black walnuts from residents in Charles and St. Mary’s County this fall. The black walnuts will be sent to the John S. Ayton - State Forest Tree Nursery in Preston where they will be planted in seedling beds and grown for two to three years. After the seedlings are pulled from the beds, they are sold to landowners throughout Maryland for reforestation purposes at the cost of production. To learn how to donate black walnuts, click here.
