My interest continue to be captured by hazels and I hope to put 3-5 in a little corner of the property this spring.

I just stumbled on this. May be the best Hazel Nut video I've seen.

Thanks Landon, I wonder if I could use a willow rooting slurry instead of rootone ? Or if they would root all by themselves?
I have just been planting seeds but I may have to try layering the Hazelnut branches.

I just watched this video on YouTube about the future of Hazelnut. Apparently they are about 60% oil by weight! They have highly sought after compounds within their oil for cooking, fuel, and lubricant uses. After squeezing the oil out; the nuts make great animal feed. The empty shells have a high temperature burn rate. The husks and shells would make great mulch. They grow in bush form naturally so a source of wood that is also flexible. Wildlife will feed on anything you leave behind. I am thinking this tree will be great in my suburban yard... even has a nice Fall color on the leaves. I want to leave as much sun for my yard as possible. So a short nut tree is the way to go for me.

Will a contorted filbert pollinate another hazelnut I bought for nut production?
I bought 2 seedling hazelnuts this spring but one died.
