Corylus colurna, commonly called Turkish hazel or Turkish filbert, is native from southeastern Europe to western Asia. It is a pyramidal deciduous tree that grows to 40-50’ tall. The trunk is short with dense, horizontal, low branching. Semi-glossy, bright green leaves have hair on the veins beneath. Leaves turn shades of yellow in fall. Corky, mottled, tan to gray bark on mature trunks may flake to reveal an orange-brown inner bark. The male catkins  are not individually showy, but cumulatively can provide much interest in a March landscape. Tiny female catkins are largely hidden. Edible nuts appear in clusters of 3-6 with spiny husks covering and extending beyond each nut. Nuts may be roasted and eaten, but are commonly left for the squirrels.
