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.
