Here in Bucks County just north of Philadelphia there is a tree epidemic. Just curious if anyone has heard of this.

My local mulch suppliers have been passing out info on this and have signs posted saying "No Black Walnut"

aren't black walnuts poison to landscape plants? I ran into that problem last year at a house we had to re-landscape (due to all plants dying from a local black walnut tree).

Not sure, I do know they stink though and when my trimmer line hits one and sends it into my leg at 100mph I feel like throwing my weed wacker :cry:
