Butternut Tree

Nuts for the Far North

The butternut, also known as the white walnut, bears tender nuts with a rich, sweet, buttery flavor even after enduring subzero temperatures! One of the hardiest of all nut trees, butternuts grow 40-60 ft. at maturity and have attractive light golden wood, which is popular for paneling and furniture. This native of North America also makes an attractive shade or landscape tree, with its rounded form and dark green foliage. Plant two or more for pollination purposes.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
