And the specific Corylus avellana, contorta  page at the Royal Horticultural Society for this tree.

      There is only one specimen of this tree at Riverview, and it is located at the northerly end of the Tuck Shop, along Holly Drive.  A slow growing tree, suitable for a small space.

Catkins in early April of 2008, catkins shown in inset detail.
