The Latin name for hazel is Corylus avellana. As Max Adams writes in his book The Wisdom of Trees, “The Hazel may be small, but it is the champion of the woods: the most useful of all trees. The Anglo-Saxons believed it to be their own special tree of knowledge. From it we learn that strength may come from small packages; that flexibility is a strength in itself, and that self-renewal is the art of survival.” Not only that, the hazel is native to the UK and many other countries around the globe.
