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

    Hazelnut Tree

    Posted by Brian McCraney on 12/19/19

    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 05/29/18

    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.
