And much later, do they harvest the wood?

Another one of those things I never thought about. Here in Missouri we have Black walnuts that grow randomly and are harvested by hand each fall. I don't know if there are any orchards of them or not. I like the walnuts in the video. The Black walnuts not so much. They are much stronger flavored. Hard to crack and hard to pick out.

James, I rented a house in the 1990's in Oregon and it had 2 1/2 acres of filbert orchard. It was bordered on both sides with acres of the same. Also we had 4 giant English walnut trees and the Black walnuts grew wild all around us.
The Jays and the squirrels lived by the hundreds in those orchards. and the nuts on the ground were the rejects. They both would pick up a nut and they could tell if it was a empty or a wormy one and throw it back down.

90% of the almonds in the US are grown in the Modesto, CA area. They are harvested by a mechanical tree shaker. Watched them do it. There is no grass under the trees so it's an easy thing to go along the ground and pick up the almonds. Makes for dust storms, though. A lady at the store at one of the big processors said she remembers her father climbing the almond trees and hitting the limbs with a hammer to loosen the almonds.

I couldn't escape the irony . . .
All that mechanization and automation. Then at the very end of the video, the quality control lady is cracking the walnuts with a CLAW HAMMER!

Thanks, stick. First video-olives or cherries? Whatever it is can't be bruised by hitting he ground. Modesto had no grass under the trees as I mentioned. There were warning signs about using headlights during windy days.
