um, do any of these articles have information useful to owners of
butternuts? i have 2, about 25-30 years old & was told they have canker
when i bought the house. thay didn't produce this year, but neither did
any of the other nut trees (black walnut & carpathian walnut. there were
a very few shagbark hickory nuts). i'm very fond of butternuts & i'd like
to save the trees if possible
