Growing black walnut trees

Asked December 24, 2015, 10:45 AM EST

I have lost to many to count up to eight years, most after one year. I have not run a test on the soil and would like to know what the soil indication should be, what equipment to have to test, but mostly what to do. I want the trees but am getting tired of throwing my money away. Thank you Goose Creek, SC

I am not familiar with the growing requirements of black walnuts in South Carolina. I did notice on the map of the natural growing area for black walnuts that your area in South Carolina was not part of the natural growing area. I would suggest you contact the soil testing lab at Clemson University ( for further information.
