Magnificent Black Walnut on Algonquin Island
In June, 2023 we plan to care for this 70-year-old Black Walnut. This tree is a prime Tree Trust candidate because its biological health is good, and it has remained strong even during the extreme floods of 2017 and 2019. Our plan is to reduce the large overextending branch, installing cobra cable to prevent the limb from breaking. This cable will prevent a potentially catastrophic tear-out of that limb when under threat from the strong prevailing wind. Dead, dying, diseased and directionally poor branches will also be removed.
