  • Dead Walnut Tree

    Hi Everyone:

    I have a dead walnut tree that needs to come down. Anyone interested in getting it down can have the wood. I live in Sacramento. I am afraid it will come down and take out my storage unit, one of my fences or one of my grandchildren or dogs. I have no clue what killed it. But it has been dead for at least three years now.

    P.S. I am Oily's sister.

    WOW, it looks like there is no bark left on it. Looks almost like a birch tree. I'm from the midwest & they sure look a lot different when they still have the bark all on them. Would be some nice wood there if someone will work for it. Good Luck

      There is a disease that is affecting Walnut trees. It is bad enough that almost 1/3 of the states have put a ban on moving unprocessed Walnut with bark across state lines. Here is a link to that disease. You may not be able to ship it across state lines.

        Nope the bark is on it. It is just that color and always has been. Interesting huh?

          I got walnuts off it after I moved here for 2 years and then next year nothing at all. I never heard of that disease and I haven't seen any little bugs or anything. It just died. It sprouted at the bottom the next two years and then completely died out.

            That is a sad situation & I didn't know it was happening. The walnut is a special tree, because of all the beautiful things made from it. I love to make things with it, in particular, the base for desk top items. I sure hope it doesn't get any worse. Thanks for the info.

              Gosh, I wish someone locally would help me bring it down. I hate to just haul it away.

                Hi Oily's sister

                I don't think you are getting any volunteers because most of us scrollers are not set up with the proper equipment. To take a tree down and cut it into manageable boards usually requires a sawmill.

                I would suggest you check your area for a local sawmill. If the tree is not bug infested to the point where they have destroyed the wood there is a chance the sawmill will take it down, haul it away, and even pay you for it.

                Good Luck with it.

                In God we trust, all others must pay cash!

                I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

                    You probably want someone qualified and insured too.
