The Hazel tree, also known as „turkish hazel“ belongs to the family of birch trees and comes from South-Eastern Europe. Earlier, it was along with Yew tree one of the most valuable joiner/carpenter/cabinet maker needs. Due to its extreme overuse until the Middle Ages, it was largely exterminated and over time fell into oblivion. The hazel tree can reach a growth height of up to 25 m and a trunk diameter of 1,10 m. Its veneer is mainly used in the production of furniture.
