The compact American Hazelnut is low-maintenance and produces branches bursting  with delicious nuts every year. A perfect shrub if you have limited space, it will reach a height of between 8 and 12 feet with a spread of up to 8 feet at full maturity.

This hardy shrub is quite at home in zones 4 through 9 and as well as providing you with a hearty crop of healthful nuts, it makes a great shrub to plant in rows to produce a living privacy fence or property boundary.  The shrubs make a great nest territory for all your favorite birds.

The drought-tolerant hazelnut puts forth sturdy branches with dark green leaves that produce vibrant fall foliage that will add golden, red and orange color to your garden throughout the autumn season. The catkins produced by the male flowers provide a great winter food source for wild animals.  

The American Hazelnut adapts easily to all soil types and thrives in full sunlight. The small nuts are easy to crack and have sweet kernels that are rich in antioxidants, nutrients, and omegas 3 and 6 so they are healthful as well as tasty. They are perfect for eating fresh form the shrub or roasted on the grill.

Planted in pairs for guaranteed pollination, the American Hazelnut shrub will produce a bountiful crop of nuts from September through October.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your American Hazelnut

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your American Hazelnut .

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your American Hazelnut gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your American Hazelnut again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
