Black walnut. Walnut trees, like chestnuts, produce a double income, as the nuts can be harvested as the trees are growing to harvestable size for timber. Growers often call black walnut a “legacy tree” because it takes about 30 years to reach it’s prime harvesting size of about 16 inches or so for a veneer log. Along the way, the walnut stand can be thinned to provide income, but the real payoff comes at harvest, as veneer logs bring between $4,000 (INR 278634.02) and $5,000 (INR 348292.52) each. An average stand of black walnut is 250 trees per acre, or $125,000 (INR 8707313.01) at harvest time, quite a legacy for the kids or grandkids!
