Black Walnut Trees

Is It Possible to Deter a Black Walnut Tree From Producing Walnuts?

We have a beautiful, huge black walnut tree in our backyard. In July - Aug thousands of walnuts fall. They turn black and gooey immediately. We spend every day picking them up and throwing them in trash bags. Getting too old to do this!

There is no way to prevent the tree from dropping nuts. It would probably be just as easy to rake the area clean whenever needed.
