    Hazelnut Tree

    Posted by Brian McCraney on Dec 19th 2019

    Trees arrived well packed, ready to go in the ground. Buds were present on arrival and became leaves shortly after being planted. Will order more trees due to the success I’ve had with my first order.

    Trees were a good size and packed with a moisture retaining material around roots. Instructions for planting were included. Buds appeared within a few days of planting.

    Hazelnut seedlings

    Posted by Paul Swanson on May 29th 2018

    So far, so good! Seedlings have leafed out and looking good after 5 days in the ground. Have planted in a grouping with other established hazelnuts (Arbor Day Project), so hoping for some cross pollination with these varieties.
