WOOD SPECIES (ORIGIN)
A native of North America Junglans Nigra or Black Walnut is probably the world’s best known, most widely used type of timber.
It was exported into Europe in the 17th Century as an ornamental and forestry tree due to its rapid growth.
Walnut trees can grow up to 20-30 metres tall and have a crown of composite deciduous leaves surrounding an upright trunk with rough bark.
Black walnut is a medium hard timber species with particularly good impact strength making it durable over time.
It has a dark brown colour and broad straight sometimes undulating veining and clearly defined growth rings.
Another distinctive feature of this timber species is the clear difference in colour between the younger and older wood, the younger is yellowish while the older wood is chocolate coloured.
