this one is in my back yard..I assume its a walnut ( don't know which) and will make the soil under it not so great to grow anything else..correct?

IMHO, first picture kind of looks like a butternut (juglans cinerea) which is a close relative of black walnut (j. nigra).

Second one looks like it could be a goldenrain tree (Koelreuteria paniculata), which is not native.

First one is most likely eastern black walnut, J.nigra.
Butternut is not at all common ANYWHERE in KY.
I have some - and some hybrids - growing here, but most folks - including a friend who is a consulting forester, have never seen a butternut 'in the wild'.
