    I thought hazelnut were a shrub or bushy type tree. It might be Hickory.

    Hazelnut is not hickory, it is...Hazelnut.

    It is a small tree that is inclined to be shrubby. Nut trees usually have pretty dense woods, so I imagine hazelnut is no different. Given how small the size of a Hazelnut usually is, it might be a lot of work for the BTUs.

    Well I know it's a hardwood so it has that going for it. Probably similar to hickory.

    Whoever thought of mixing hazelnut with coffee beans was a brilliant person.

    I concur with DBoon; Nut-bearing woods usually burn long.
    Stop it, you're embarrassing me. ;em I used to invent cool stuff like this all the time, but then I got addicted to stacking wood. ;lol

    I got this stuff from a farm and they were already cut rounds of about 14-16 inch length. Most are pretty tough to split but have been seasoned for 2 years. Loaded the stove up with about eight 3 -4 inch splits and had a nice coal bed this morning. I'd say this stuff is pretty good.

    Hazel trees have two major uses:
    • Nuts: Filberts or hazelnuts are cultivated and eaten raw, roasted or ground into flour and added to a number of breads and desserts. The nuts can also be used as a topping for soups and salads. Filberts are an outstanding source of Vitamin E and B, as well as folate, which helps rebuild damaged cells. Oils from the nuts are extracted and used as an emollient in a number of beauty products.
      Wood: The tree's smooth, reddish-brown wood is highly prized for its durability and elasticity. The timber is used to create a myriad of items, including:
      • Walking sticks
      • Basketball hoops
      • Fishing rods
      • Baskets
      • Tool handles
      • Shepherds' crooks
    Hazel tree wood also yields excellent charcoal from which gunpowder and crayons are made

    Pity Me, Hazel nuts, or the oil from same are on par with cyanide for me. Other nuts including coconut are also problematic.
