Default Black Walnut Tree?

Can anyone confirm if this is a black walnut, or not?

I took these pictures with my phone and can't really tell if the leaves have those alternating stems that would identify it. The image of the bark is better, so maybe someone can identify it as a walnut, or rule it out.

The tree is in Georgia, about an hour northeast of Atlanta.

It sure reminds me of the one that was in my grandmother's back yard in Birmingham. black walnut bark - Bing Images

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

The leaves are quite distinctive. I think you're right.

Look around on the ground near that tree and look for partially eaten walnut shells. They are dark, and hard as steel. Squirrels love them. Otherwise, from the pictures, it looks like black walnut to me also.

Hi Mark
Im up in Northern New Jersey and we have quite a few black walnut trees in this area-- from your pics it looks like black walnut to me--- if you have a sawmill in your area, those folks might be willing to purchase the tree from you to be cut into lumber--
I've sold oak and walnut to the sawmill in my area--
Hope this helps

Default White Walnut?

This is not disputing any posts on this thread.
I have some limb cutoffs from a so called 'walnut' tree that is in Jefferson Oregon. (20 miles south of Salem OR).

I band sawed it up and the wood is very hard but it is stark white.
Is walnut ever this white?
