Some believe the shape unsightly and the nuts can result in a mess if they get underfoot - or under automobile tires" Ohio Wesleyan has formally learned the hard way. My first solution to remove this pine issue is to remove the walnut trees from campus and then replace them with a different sort of tree that doesn't bear fruit. Because of this, Ohio Wesleyan's campus would be able to reap the benefits of a cleaner and safer campus for the students. The pine trees on campus can be found up against parking lots as well as across the sidewalk on the pupils' way to class. These trees grow black walnuts. When these walnuts are dangling in the trees they are not an issue. However, when they fall numerous issues arise for pupils.
