    Does it ever produce something that looks like this in the fall?

    Well... It might not be old enough to produce catkins yet. What color does it turn during the fall? Have you ever observed any flowers on it during the spring?

    I have never seen any fruit on them and as to the color of the leaves...I believe them to turn yellow and fall off. We don't get pretty fall colors here in Texas, sadly. These things are all less than 5 years old. That was when the house was purchased from a family who had a professional landscaper. Since then, no lawn maintenance has been done except for mowing.

    Thanks for the info.... I am going to stick with a European filbert.

    If you want a second opinion you could always contact your cooperative extension office. They might be able to ID it for you.
    Here is their web page:
    http://www.csrees.usda.gov/Extension/texas.html

    They work with two different universities, so you will have to look at both links until you find your county. Then you should be able to find a phone number for their office. They are a cooperative effort between a local university and the USDA. They usually will have a staff of master gardeners working as volunteers. I would call them and let them know that you have a leaf that you were hoping to get identified. They will usually do this for free.

    Or...
    If you still have contact with the previous home owners, you can ask them who did the landscape work and then contact the company to find out if they kept a plan of your property.
