American Hazelnut Tree

The American Hazelnut Tree (Corylus americana) is a native deciduous shrub or small tree that is found in eastern and central North America. It is known for its edible nuts, which are a good source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats.

The American Hazelnut Tree typically grows to be 6-15 feet tall and 6-10 feet wide. It has a multi-stemmed habit of growth and dense, green foliage. The leaves are oval-shaped and have a serrated margin. In the spring, the tree produces male and female flowers. The male flowers are catkins, which are long, drooping clusters of small flowers. The female flowers are less noticeable and are hidden among the leaves.

In the fall, the tree produces nuts, which are enclosed in a hard shell. The nuts are typically ripe in September or October. The nuts can be eaten fresh, roasted, or ground into flour. Hazelnut oil is also extracted from the nuts and is used in cooking and cosmetics.

The American Hazelnut Tree is a relatively low-maintenance plant. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is also drought-tolerant once established. The American Hazelnut Tree does not require much pruning, but it can be pruned in the winter to remove dead or damaged branches.

The American Hazelnut Tree is a great choice for a variety of landscaping uses. It can be planted as a single specimen plant, in groups, or in borders. It can also be used to create a privacy screen or a windbreak. The American Hazelnut Tree is also a good choice for planting in food forests and edible landscapes.

Here are some tips for growing American Hazelnut Trees:

  • Choose a planting site that receives full sun to partial shade and has well-drained soil.
  • Amend the soil with compost or other organic matter before planting.
  • Water regularly, especially during the first growing season.
  • Fertilize in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Mulch around the base of the tree to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Prune in the winter to remove dead or damaged branches.

With proper care, American Hazelnut Trees can thrive for many years and provide you with a delicious and nutritious food source.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
