Where to put it: 

Turkish Filbert is an extremely hardy, wind-proof shade tree. It will do well in any landscape. Perfect selection for parkways and is tolerant of urban conditions. We recommend that it be planted away from sidewalks or driveways where leaves and nuts may fall. 

 What it needs:

Turkish Filbert prefers medium moisture and well-drained soils and doesn’t do well in heavy clay soils. Newly planted trees need a very consistent watering schedule. This tree will grow best in full sun to part shade. Once established this tree is drought tolerant.
