More About Walnut Lumber
Black walnut is a hearty, strong wood defined by its rich deep, dark brown hues and unique figure. The lumber has natural color variation ranging from dark to lighter browns with blond or white sapwood.
Walnut is most often kiln dried, and can be steamed during that process. Unsteamed walnut maintains more dramatic color variations and characteristics. Both types often have beautiful grain structure, and are one of the most popular species of hardwood that we carry.
There are three native North American walnut trees used for lumber:
- the central and eastern American black walnut, J. nigra,
- the Nothern Californian black walnut, J. hindsii, (also known as “Claro”), and
- butternut (J. cinerea).
The most cultivated walnut tree, J. regia, is often referred to as English walnut and produces the best variety of nut. Its name is taken from the English merchant marines who once controlled its world commerce. Making up the largest orchard in the world, the English walnut tree had been integral in the development of walnut lumber because of both its popular nut and its adaptability. It was imported to California more than a century ago, and has changed both the native forest landscape and the timber industry.
