I was given 11 walnut trees that are at least 30 years old and there about 4 hours away from me, I have not seen them and what I would like to know would it be worth the travel to go get them and how big would a 30 year old walnut tree be. I have never seen a walnut tree in person so this will be a first for me.

Just curious... are these trees still in the ground? I would think that is too young for lumber, but the walnut harvest might be good.

My guess would be 7-9" in diameter.... but that's just a guess based on a walnut tree we had when I was a kid. Lots of factors contribute to how much a tree grows per year.

In my area the rings on a walnut tree are about 1/4" per year. Double that for both sides of the tree and it's 1/2" per year. A 30 yr. old tree in my neighborhood would be about 15" in dia. Gary
