Starting a Butternut Tree

Does anyone know on how to start a butternut tree? I do know plant the nut but does it have to be dried out first or planted with the green shell on it or what can someone help me?
Thank You

Don't take this as gospel but, most nuts have to undergo a cold period in order to break out of the shells. Therefore, I'd plant them, keep them watered, but not too wet & wait til next spring.

You might try to Google your question.

Good luck!
