Members of the walnut family have large, aromatic leaves that are usually alternate, but opposite in Alfaroa and Oreomunnia. The leaves are pinnately compound, or ternate, and usually 20–100 cm long. The trees are wind-pollinated, and the flowers are usually arranged in catkins. The eight genera in the family include the commercially important nut-producing trees walnut, pecan, and hickory.
