English Walnut

15 years ago

It looks like my English walnut made it through another winter. It's been bearing nuts for about 4 years now but the squirrels have been leaving only a couple for me.

My problem with this tree is that the early grow-and-die-back cycles left me with a "clump" of two trees instead of one straight tree. The straightest one is the smaller of the two. I'm wondering if I should just leave it like it is or cut one of the trunks (and which one). It's a Solomon-like problem.
