This 10-page PDF publication describes how butternuts, native hardwood trees related to black walnuts, are threatened by butternut canker disease and have been listed as a species of special concern by the federal government. As a result, natural resources professionals are working to protect and conserve the trees when they identify them. This publication describes steps that these professionals and private landowners can take to make sure we continue to have these trees growing in our forests in the future.
