Description: Butternut (Juglans cinerea), also known as white walnut because of its light-colored wood, is a shortlived, small- to medium-sized tree (40 to 60 feet [12 to 18 meters] tall; 30 to 50 feet [9 to 15 meters] crown spread). Butternut's native range includes most of the northeastern United States and southern Canada from New Brunswick to Georgia, and west to Arkansas and Minnesota (Rink 1990; Dirr 1998). Butternut often grows in widely scattered clusters, with each cluster containing a few individual trees.
