I have a lot of sawdust from black walnut trees. Would it be appropriate to use for humanure that would eventually go around trees (after composting of a couple years)?
Concern is the Juglans. Thank you!

just to be safe i'd still just give it to trees that i know to be resistant to juglone. other nut trees, pawpaws, persimmons...but i'd probably keep it away from rosaceous stuff.

I should probably keep that one year of compost for the trees that already live in “Walnut World”. They are the same trees you mentioned.
Thank you Greg!
