Young Tree ID
« on: August 10, 2019, 09:50:19 PM »
Hello everyone,

While walking a property I recently purchased, here in northern New Hampshire, I came across a tree that I do not recognize.  It is a cluster of hardwood stump sprouts with leaves that look a little like elm, but the fruit is completely different.

Here are some pictures,


 



 

If anyone can identify this, I would really appreciate the help, because I have tried, and can't quite figure it out.

Yes, hazelnut.  Corylus americana.  Note the doubly serrate leaves.  Birch family.

Thank you, everybody, for putting me on the track of hazelnut.  I thought it might be related to birch because of the leaves, but the fruit threw me off.  After a little more research, I think I can give it a positive ID of beaked hazelnut (Corylus cornuta).  The specimen I found is missing the red gland on the fruits that are found on American hazelnut, and beaked hazelnut also looks to be far more tolerant of cold, which is important since we have had temperatures in the -20s (even -30s) the past several winters.

Thanks for the help

I was under the impression that it was just the Hazel tree, and the nut was the hazelnut.
