      Here's a link to an interesting article on using wild nuts, such as black walnuts or a kind of acorn:

      We have lots of black oaks in our woodlands, but we have not been successful in our limited attempts to shell them for use.

        My mother in law had a couple of Black Walnut trees, they're still there, those things are squirrel magnets. I have a Bur Oak in the front yard, the chipmunks and squirrels go nuts over it. The sidewalk and yard get loads of acorn shells.

          We have an oak tree on our lot that was there when we built the house in 1996. I don't recall it having ever produced many acorns, though. The arborists we've used have never agreed on what type of oak it is, the most common identification is chinkapin.

          We planted two chestnut trees in the front yard a few years, they haven't started producing nuts yet, though I've seen catkins in the spring twice. (One of them is not doing as well, and it takes two healthy trees to cross-pollinate and produce nuts, I may wind up replacing that tree.)


            Deleted. The Amazon link didn't work.


              We have a black oak in front of the house, which drops some of its acorns into the lake. The ducks love them. Squirrels and chipmunks go for the ones that hit the ground. We have a wonderful white oak in the back. The squirrels and chipmunks love it, as do the deer.
