Edible Nut Trees are very popular and sought-after edible landscaping and shade trees! The recent emphasis on healthy eating, providing habitat for wildlife, and backyard food sustainability has brought even more attention to edible Nut Trees!
Not Just For The Squirrels!
Nuts are one of the best plant sources of protein! They are rich in fiber, phytonutrients, and antioxidants such as Vitamin E and selenium. Nut trees such as Almonds, Hazelnut, Pecan, and Walnut are all touted as heart-friendly!
Nuts are an important source of nutrients for both humans and wildlife. Squirrels, turkeys, and many other wildlife species rely on nuts for a major part of their diet. Songbirds adore the shelter and strong limbs to nest in!
Nut Tree Uses as Landscape Trees
Edible Nut Trees also contribute to the landscape and your home's curb appeal with their stately size and shade attributes! Many of these trees also have fantastic fall color!
Walnut and Pecan trees are good shade trees and are attractive specimen lawn trees. Hazelnut trees are used for their attractiveness in landscaping settings and work as shelterbelts, windbreaks, and hedges, as often as they are grown for their tasty nuts!
Lumber from Pecan and Black Walnut trees is highly valued, and wood from these trees is used for many construction and tool-making endeavors.
Almond trees have gorgeous spring blossoms and the Horse Chestnut blooms will amaze you when they appear at the ends of each branch in upright spires! You'll be amazed again when the spikey seeds full of conkers, or large green Walnut clusters appear later in the year! Pollinators adore the flowers of most of these Nut Tree varieties!
Lesser known Nut trees include Buckeyes, Hornbeams, Beech, and Butternuts! Hazelnut trees are more shrubby but also great specimen trees and create great hedges for screening and shelterbelts.
