177a Valleybrook Estates Black Walnut
Valleybrook Drive, Lancaster PA (across from 250 Valleybrook Drive, near swim- ming pool)

This tree, growing at a protected and competition-free site, is the largest Black Walnut in Lancaster County and the fifth largest in the state of Pennsylvania.  In 2013 it measured 187 inch- es in trunk circumference, 85 feet in height, and 82 feet in spread (pabigtrees.com).

This amazing species, highly prized for its timber, nuts and beauty, has occa- sionally brought $10-20K for a single mature tree.  As a result, large speci- mens have been nearly eliminated (through harvesting) in some parts of the country.
