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.
