i've got them all over my timber. people tell me that if they're straight and tall enough, they're worth a lot of $$$. guy i work with says he bought 40 acres of timber, sold the walnut trees off and paid for it.
damn things are hell on mower blades, though.
They are still fairly valuable if you market them correctly. The two generations before me used walnut trees as financial saviors in the 80's and as a means to gather up down payments when expanding farms. As long as you replant them and aren't in a hurry, money really does grow on trees.
