Nut trees can be grown successfully in New Jersey for their edible nut crop, as a lumber resource, for wind and erosion control, and for habitat and food for wildlife. However, this publication is intended for the suburban homeowner or hobbyist who can benefit from the ornamental and shade value of the nut trees as well as their nut crops for food when the nuts ripen each autumn.
