Look good together. Are black walnut trees popular where you are as I saw another member has one?

Drc, there are probably 4000 miles between me and Lori. She lives on the east and I live on the west of the country. They are 2 completely different climates. Black walnuts are growing naturally in Souhtern Ontario (eastern side of Canada, closer to you) but they are not so popular around here .Too wet and not as hot in the summer as back east.
The one in the picture is in good spot and is growing like crazy. I did not expect that rapid growth. I have 2 other 2 walnuts (English walnut and Persian walnut) and they are strugling. I do not know what possessed me to buy 3 of them.
