Plants that tolerate Black Walnut

Platanus occidentalis - Sycamore

One of the elite ruling class of American trees, sycamores tower over other trees and show off their dazzling white bark that's often partly concealed by flaking beige and gray. Sycamores are found in flood plain forests--Cayuga Inlet is a great place to see a world class population up close--and thrive with alternating flooding and draining. Gravelly or sandy soils make sure water doesn't sit indefinitely on the roots. Sycamores can grow 6 feet a year.
