Hey! I'm interested, let's talk more?

If you want seeds or starts, I am happy to trade for pics of wherever you plant them.  :)

Willow trees suck up a lot of water, so you need to research any tree thoroughly before you plant it!  Generally, they should best be natives, or secondly productive noninvasive nonnatives.

Problem is that only a few trees (like figs) are easy to propagate from cuttings.  For the rest, as the old Chinese saying goes..."The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.  The second best time is now."

But based on how old this thread is...had people planted seeds back then, they'd already be 12 years old NOW!

Dig the trash pick and invasives removal for responsible GG...not just reckless, invasive plant graffiti (like it seems some others here are doing)! 8)

How do you know they are walnuts?

And if so, Walnut trees grow quite would have to be transplanted if you don't want large trees there.

However, I'm guessing they are like Pecan trees which have very deep taproots and usually don't survive transplanting even when just a foot tall seedling, much less a 6' sapling.

One thing I notice that often needs to go hand-in-hand, if not preceding, GG is removing invasive plants first.  Many communities now have RIP (Remove Invasive Plants) programs...but I think TX still has few to none. :-[

Yet DFW is already highly-infested with Chinaberry trees, Chinese & Japanese Privet, bastard cabbage, Arundo donax, etc...which reduces your space for natives and GG.   But they are always better cleared before rather than felling trees and pruning bushes could smash whatever you're trying to grow next...

I realize that some people think bamboo is an evasive plant.  There is truth to that, and at the same time if you plant it in the right spots it could add much beauty to our environments.  I have been scouting out many spots as I have been driving around my city and I see many opportunities.  I hope to get a digital camera and share some pictures of places that it would be great!
Yes it is invasive, so why not choose from the vast palette of native plants...or at least useful noninvasive nonnatives?  If you need a starter guide...try Austin's Native & Adapted Landscape Plants Guide. 8)
