Walnut Question
« on: March 25, 2012, 11:56:58 am »
Ours family has a small ranch in Northern California and we have about 500 plus Walnut trees on it. The trees are 60 to 70 years old and from time to time in the pruning process we take some fairly large limbs. The root is Black Walnut but the tops are an English graft and bear the nuts.

My Question is will the English make a bow? I've seen lots of bows made from the Black but can't remember seeing English? I have a never ending supply of English (makes crapy firewood, very dirty burn) so I'm curious???

In the picture you can see the graft at the bottom...
