Birkemeier Nursery sells only highly resistant hazelnut varieties that have been developed and released from Oregon State University’s Hazelnut Breeding Program.
Below is a list of the filbert varieties we have in our nursery. The ones marked by a red asterisk * are patented by OSU. Propagation of those varieties is prohibited unless you have the proper licensing agreement with the office of OCCD at Oregon State University and a current ODA Nursery License. Royalty charges are included in the tree price.

Deposit of $1 per tree confirms your order. We accept Check or Cash payment. Our trees are mostly bare root. We fill any WAIT LIST orders on a first ordered, first filled basis, by date. Balance is due on receipt of trees. All pots and totes will be returned to Birkemeier Nursery. We add a deposit of $30 per tote box to the order. Refundable when boxes are returned in a timely manner.
All our Hazelnut trees are hand sorted and tied in bundles of 20 then packed in tote boxes with sawdust. Our totes hold 600 trees each. #1 Bare-root trees are a minimum of 34″ planting height and have strong roots around the stem. Caliper varies.
Trees grown in the shade-house or traditionally propagated from the field should not require staking. Greenhouse grown trees may need the support of a stake when planted in the field. Many people choose to stake everything to prevent tipping in the wind and soft soil the first winter. We like to use a 3/8″ x 5′ bamboo stake.
