Hazelnut Trees at Nature Hills Nursery!

hazelnut

Part of the Birch family (Betulaceae) the Hazelnut falls into the genus Corylus, which comprises many species of deciduous trees.

These natives grow wild throughout the temperate regions of North America, Europe, and Central Asia, and several species are cultivated specifically for their fruit, commonly known interchangeably as a Hazelnut or a Filbert.

Both humans and a range of wildlife enjoy these Nut Trees for their mild, slightly sweet flavor! The nuts are nutrient-dense and often a vital resource of late-season food. Ripening in the late season (August to October depending on your climate), these begin producing in their 4th year and enjoy larger and larger crops each following year thereafter.

Many cultures use Hazel branches for making traditional baskets, thatched fencing, and other practical items.

Four Seasons of Visual Interest

In spring, long yellowish male catkins (like their Birch Tree cousins) and tiny red female flowers may appear on the same tree, as they do on the Turkish Hazel.

Summer brings a dense canopy of broad, dark green, oval leaves with a handsome serrated edge. Hazels provide screening for you and shelterbelts for wildlife and birds!

Clusters of brown, thick-shelled fruit emerge through the fall alongside vibrant yellow foliage! The nuts are encasesed in a papery casing that adds a unique texture to the plant!

Lastly, the corky bark adds interest to the winter landscape!

How & Where to Plant Hazel Trees

Hazelnut trees prefer at least six hours of direct sunlight every day and well-drained soil. Full sun brings increased flowering and therefore tasty nuts!

Once established, these trees are cold-hardy, drought-resistant, and relatively maintenance-free. Plant one as a lone shade tree in an open yard or line them along your property's edge as natural fencing.

Group Hazelnuts in island beds, underplant with shade-loving perennials or pair them with Chickasaw plum trees for a naturalized edible landscape that feeds and shelters wildlife.

Many Hazel trees are not self-pollinating and do best with a partner. But these shrubby trees look great in groupings and forming long rows anyway!

Prune Hazel Nut Trees when they are dormant in the late winter or early spring. Older trees can be kept producing vigorously by means of renewal pruning every 3-5 years. For nut or shelterbelt form plants, remove the oldest, fattest stems out at the ground level. This encourages newer, more vigorously producing stems to take their place.
