Hazelnuts/Filberts: Nut producing shrubs. Not thorny, but my understanding is that they were frequently used to make living fences in Europe. Beaked hazelnut (Corylus cornuta) and American hazelnut (Corylus americana) are both native to the U.S. and supposed to be quite cold hardy. The hazelnut commonly grown for commercial production, Corylus avellana, is not as hardy. Badgersett Research Corp has been working on hybrids of the commercial European hazels and native filberts to produce cold hardy, disease resistant productive plants. According to their website they're definitely hardy to Zone 4 and probably to Zone 3.

I like to accommodate my neighbors need to hunt and just wander and enjoy the outdoors. I try to coordinate hunting so we all get a chance to hunt and hopefully kill some deer. Deer are a horrendous problem here and I need all the help I can get. My general policy is that anybody is welcome to walk through my property. I just don’t want them to take anything or leave anything. Most of them feel the same way.
