Looking to attract wildlife to your garden? Look no further than the American Hazelnut! This deciduous shrub, native to the Eastern and Central United States, produces nuts that are a preferred mast by many animals, including squirrels, deer, turkey, woodpeckers, and pheasants. The male catkins also serve as a winter food staple for the ruffed grouse. Not only is the American Hazelnut great for wildlife enthusiasts, but it also has culinary uses. The nuts are delicious for desserts and are often used in expensive cakes, cookies, and candies. The bark can also be used to create poultices that help close cuts and wounds. With its dense, spreading or spherical shape, American Hazelnut prefers full sun for optimal growth and development.
