I have a black walnut tree in front of my house (35’tall) and I want to plant a native dogwood about 23’ away. Will
the dogwood survive that close?

Google…..Juglone. BWs have that alleopathic chemical that will inhibit many plants from growing near it.

How many years will pass before a bare root trwee will begin to produce a crop?

Frank, thanks for the good description. And also keep in mind that most walnuts are grafted onto Black Walnut root stock. So it is not just Black Walnuts.

Larry, are you inquiring about a walnut tree or bare root trees in general? It really depends on the type of bare root. Apples can take 4-5 years before they start fruiting, but peaches may fruit the same year you planted them or the next year. I will also depend on the fertility of your soil. I found that when I amended my soil with more phosphorus, my trees really started flowering. Walnuts may take 5 years to start flowering and producing fruit. Another factor is, do you have the pollinators that your tree needs? It will not produce a crop if it does not have the right pollinator nearby.
