Beaked Hazelnut
Schuettes Oak

Beaked Hazelnut is a multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub native to North America.

It features smooth, grey bark and edible nuts. Beaked Hazelnut prefers a rich sandy-clay loam but will grow on poorer sites, and can be used as an understory shrub.

Note: You want more than one hazelnut to improve yields.

Schuettes Oak is a naturally occurring hybrid of Swamp White Oak and Bur Oak. With a faster growth than both parent species, it is one of the fastest growing Oak trees. They are known for growing very large and wide, so space them appropriately. It is considered one of the most adaptable Oaks with little preference on soil conditions. It can handle growing in wet, saturated soils as well as those that are dry, clay, or alkaline.

The Schuettes Oak has very large acorns. They have a large cup portion like the Bur Oak, but without the fringe. Due to the Swamp White Oak parentage, the acorns have less tannins and a sweeter taste. They are a food source for various wildlife including birds, squirrels, and deer.
