Native from British Columbia to Newfoundland, south to California, Colorago, Missouri, Ohio, and Georgia. Often found in the Pacific NW where red alders grow and looks quite similar. The hazelnut has a clumping habit and does not get as tall as the alder. It also does not appear to tolerate as much wet feet as the alder will. Attracts warblers, grosbeaks, woodpeckers, chickadees, titmice, sparrows, crows, jays, nuthatches and thrashers.
