Product Overview

American Hazelnut Tree - Member Of The Birch Family

Why American Hazelnut?

American Hazelnut trees are consistently in short supply due to their increased demand by suppliers and consumers. These trees are native to the eastern half of North America and can grow in various conditions. The American Hazelnut is a small-sized tree and grows 20 feet tall with a 15-foot spread.


American Hazelnut trees start bearing nuts in as little as four years of plantation and give a heavy yield in 6 to 7 years. The nuts are sweet and can be eaten raw or ground into flour.


The American Hazelnuts are also crucial for wildlife. The nuts are eaten by squirrels, foxes, deer, northern bobwhite, etc., and have high nutritional value and sweet taste. The dense and low-growth habitat also offers nesting grounds for animals.


The American Hazelnut tree, Corylus americana is also valuable as an ornamental plant and grows in full sun or partial shade. The leaves turn orange to red or purple in the fall, which adds to its beauty and charm.


Pollination: Self-fertile but requires wind to pollinate

    They arrived in the mail very green and the roots were still wet. I planted them right away. Now the wait for spring. Very pleased and a great deal.

    The trees arrived in good condition. The roots were packed in a moisture holding gel and it was still moist when we set the trees out.

    Pleased with my purchase

    Posted by AcA on 05/31/21

    Received my hazelnuts as barerooted stems, as expected. They were packaged well in a long slender box. They stayed another week inside the box after the package was delivered, because my dear sister brought the package in without telling me. Then the unforgetable FREEZE of 2021 Heard All Around the World happened here in Houston. When things simmered down and the crisis was over, I remembered my rootlings. Went ahead and put them into pots. As time went on only one hazelnut took. I wasn't surprised because of the circumstances. BUT considering I bought 2 persimmon, 2 cranberry, & 2 hazelnut & only one stem didn't sprout. Shoot! I consider that a blessing. Going to order again and have another go.

    The seeding arrived in just the right planting season. They were in excellent condition with roots most and buds ready for sunlight. Will certainly order again.

    trees arrived in great shape and I am excited to get them growing

    Posted by DARLENE WIATREK on 01/05/21

    I am very content with my purchase..the trees are shorted than I expected, but I'm sure they will thrive quite well. They had a very substantial tap root and lots of hair roots, so I'm sure they will do well here in TEXAS..
