Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
Hazel trees grow quietly in dense hedges and on the edge of woods. They are part of rural landscapes more than urban landscapes. These trees are often known as shrubs. This hazel does not go unnoticed though. Turkish hazels are a hardy species, which grows a straight trunk and a beautiful crown in the shape of an egg. It could well reach 20–25 m in the coming years. Turkish hazel trees are being used as decoration in more and more parks, roundabouts and avenues. Be careful not to confuse them with other trees in the hazel genus though!
