Max distance for hazelnut trees

Hello,

I'm interested in growing a couple Hazelnut trees at my house in southern Ontario, with one in the front yard and one in the back, but the distance between them might be on the order of 100 feet. There would be a bit of a wind corridor running between them (ie. the space between the house and the fence), but I'm wondering if this is too far for the wind pollination? What should the maximum distance be?

Thanks!

Luckily, they are somewhat self-fertile.

For best pollination, I would plant both trees into the same hole.
