Hinds Walnut Tree (Juglans hindsii)


This tree is notable for its size, age and that it is not native to Oregon. Its location was a probable Indian camping and fishing ground where migrating salmon were abundant and accessible. It predates the arrival of settlers and may have sprouted from a cast-off nut.

It is located 12 miles northwest of present day Sutherlin, OR on State Highway 138 (milepost 12.36) adjacent to the southwest corner of Yellow Creek bridge.
