Northern California Walnut - Juglans hindsii
Historically, this walnut was limited to a few sites in central California; it is now more widespread in lowland, moist sites, although it is drought tolerant. Only a few native stands remain. It is a medium-sized tree up to 60 feet tall, with a wide crown. The leaf is a foot long with many lancelike leaflets; they are toothed with tufts of hairs beneath. The nut is large with a thick shell and thin husk, but the edible seed is quite small. The wood is used for furniture and is noted for its fine grain patterns. This species is used as a rootstalk for English Walnut (Juglans regia).
