Planting with Black Walnuts
Black Walnut (Juglans nigra) trees are a large fast growing tree, commonly planted in this area. However Black Walnut trees do have a downside.  Due to juglone which is a root exudate that this tree produces, certain plants will not grow under or near this tree. But don't be discouraged!  
There are many plants that can be planted in the root zone of a Black Walnut Tree.
