They need scions anyway.  Unlikely that many, or any, viable nuts would 
be there, and they would have been crossed with all sorts of things.

Would there still be nuts on the ground or on the trees at this time of 
the year from the 2006 growing season?  Seems like critters would have 
gotten them by now. -- Sam

Here is the information that Lon posted earlier to get material for 
Rutgers University.
 
If anyone lives in Washington state, or can go there very soon, there
 is a need to have someone go to Don Balser's place there and 
collect  nuts.
 I was contacted by Theodore Danicki in New Jersey who says that Rutgers
 wants to plant walnuts from Don's collection to screen the seedlings
 for disease resistance and quality.  Don, unfortunately, has reached
 the point where he is unable to work the trees any more and can't
 collect the nuts.  He is going to have to sell his place next year.  So
 someone is needed who could go to Mt. Vernon, Washington to collect the
 nuts.   His full address is 1458 Donnelly Rd., Mt. Vernon, WA 98273
 If you can help, the contact address is:
 Cook College
 Department of Plant Biology and Pathology
 59 Dudley Rd.
 New Brunswick, NJ 08901
 Attention, Sarah Baxter
 You can contact her at Sarab at rci.rutgers.edu
 
Thank you.
