Little leaf linden close to a Carpathian walnut

Asked June 15, 2014, 11:36 AM EDT

I have a linden that is 16 feet from C. Walnut - they are both doing well but I just realized that the linden could be affected by the alleopathy of the walnut. Should I take the walnut out?They were both planted in the last 5-6 years. Thank you.

I have never seen a plant that was clearly affected by allelopathy from a walnut, though it is talked about a lot. If it happens it would be only specific plant species. I don't know if a linden would be one of those, but I wouldn't take either tree out.
