Florence Walnut Tree Farm

Address: East 3rd Street
Florence, KS 66851
Telephone Number: 620.382.4191

About this Exploration:

The Walnut Tree Farm was started in cooperation with the Kansas Forest Service Hardwood Forestry Fund and local volunteers.  The trees were planted in March of 2006 and the expected harvest date is 2060.
The project manager is Leonard Ellis and the Assistant Manager is Joe Heath.
Thousands of walnut trees were planted along "String Town" on the outside of the dike east of town. The antique brick road is as good as it was 100 years ago. Imagine what it will be like in another 20 years or in the year 2060 when these trees have matured.
