I have a couple apple trees over 20 years old that were planted by the previous land owners.

We also have some black walnut growing around the house. I know they give off juglone which I found out is not good for apple trees.

A squirrel had decided that one of the apple trees was a good spot to eat some walnuts. So a pile of decaying and broken walnut hulls were around the tree but I removed as much leftovers as possible today.

Will some walnut hulls hurt or kill an established apple tree?

I doubt enough jugalone would be present from that. Its poorly soluble in water so it doesnt move alot in the soil. It generally takes a high amount over several years, and that is in the immediate area under the tree canopy. Small amounts come from the leaves and stems and larger amounts from the roots, hulls, and buds.

Thanks

I figured a little bit would not hurt but removed what I could anyway.

This was right at the base of the trunk.
