    Interesting, lots of manpower required. First to layout all of the drop cloths then do pick up the walnuts. I wonder if the trees feel any ill effects?

    Thanks for posting.

    They've got that covered now. I've seen this style shaker used in some of the large walnut plantations in California...

    Thanks Marv, now that is cool. I still wonder about the life history of the trees.

    I wonder why there is barren soil all around those trees? Seems rather odd.

    Unknown, but same around pistachios. Smaller orchards pick them by hand, summer employment for high-schoolers. In small groups, with a basketball player to really pick a tree clean.
