Native nut tree of Quebec, nut of exceptional taste and conservation effort. This tree once ubiquitous in the forests of southern Quebec is now seriously threatened by a fungal disease (Sirococcus clavigignenti-juglandacearum or Ophiognomonia clavigignenti-juglandacearum) causing cankers and eventually leading to the death of the affected tree. Our trees from seedlings are part of an effort to save the species, in search of disease resistant genetics.

To be planted in well-drained soil in full sun with a recommended spacing of 10m between each tree!

* Note that the life expectancy of these trees is greatly compromised by the disease and the planting should be done primarily for a collective conservation effort. *
