Trees Growing at Our Pleasant Hill Oregon Home

Hazelnut - Filbert

Filbert Betulaceae This is a deciduous nut tree. Makes a handsome, well-structured small tree for garden or terrace. a ten-year-old tree may yield up to 10 lbs. of nuts a year. Because Filberts are grown extensively in this area, birds, mostly Jays and squirrels have planted many of these in our area. Hundreds of them dot our acreage. A dozen or so have grown to the 10-20 foot heights. We have replanted a few and cultivated others. Oregon grows about 95% of the USA crop of Filberts or Hazelnuts if you prefer. Turkey is the leading world producer.
