Finding A Tree For Poor Soils
TN Nurseries best selling trees
Some trees are genuinely picky, needing just the suitable soil and temperature. Others are more laid back and will do fine in almost any soil.
Others are in a third category. They have a definite preference but are tolerant of your mistakes and forgive poor soil.
The butternut tree belongs to the last category. It has yellow buds in the winter time which make it quite striking. Though it's closely related to the pecan, the nuts are not used by humans. Instead, you can leave them for decoration or use by wildlife. The wood brings a nice flavor when used for smoking meat. Though it prefers moist soil, Carya cordiformis or butternut will also tolerate a dry or poor one. Please find it in our tree nursery.
