|I have three hazelnut trees, all different varieties, and all 18 years old. They have produced exactly three nuts in any given year. What is the problem?

|Hazelnuts (Corylus) are the ornamental relatives of filbert trees. Sometimes there's confusion because the terms filbert and hazelnut are used interchangably. Your trees will never produce a full crop of nuts, but are beautiful ornamentals with strong branch structure. Enjoy your trees for their summertime shade and wintertime sillouettes.
