Looking for a rootstock resource for black cherry trees AND black walnut trees. Thanks in advance. Sid Stephenson '62

Mr. Stephenson,

I checked with Dr. Larry Stein-Extension Horticulturist, and he recommended the Eastern black walnut is what you should look for regarding the black walnut trees. However, when it comes to black cherry, we would not recommend them. When looking to purchase quality root stock, you would want to find a reputable nursery. Womack nursery in De Leon, Texas would be an example. Hope this helps!
