Tree Profiles



The deciduous hazel has served many uses in the past, including the making of tools, fences and crannógs. Its leaves are soft to touch and its smooth bark can shine like gold in the sun. The hazel produces catkins in spring and if you look closely you may see tiny red tuft-like flowers. Hazelnuts are eaten by squirrels, birds and rodents and can often be found in little stores for the winter months ahead.
