protecting hazelnuts until harvest from squirrels

Years ago I planted some hazelnut trees I got from the National Arbor Day Foundation. Last summer I had a bumper crop coming on. I waited until the recommended harvest time--late July, early August--and found not a single nut! How can I protect my hazelnuts this year?

cherry trees

It appears from looking at leaf images, that my cherry tree has cherry leaf spot. The leaves are turning yellow and falling off. Other than trying to get the leaves that have fallen up instead of mowing them, is there any thing that I can spray the trees or the ground that will help? Thank you!

Strawberries

What varieties of strawberries do local growers use? Where can I purchase them? The varieties sold at lowes, walmart, etc. Just don't seem to do as well as they should. I'm thinking it is because they are not indigenous to this area. I would like to try a variety that local farmers grow, that have a proven track record in this area. Thanks.

Fruit producing plant

I have came across this particular fruit in forestry areas and mostly along roadsides. it looks and smells like a pepper of some sort on the inside. I wish to know what it is and if it is edible.

Maple and Cherry tree shock

On Sep 10, 2016 I planted 5 trees in my yard, 3 Red Maples and 2 Quanzan Cherries (in holes 1 1/2 times the diameter of the pots and with soil conditioner added). The trees are browning and dropping bottom leaves yet the top leaves seem very happy. I am watering once per week with a slow 1/16" stream for 30 minutes x 3 intervals for a total of 1 1/2 hour slow stream irrigation, on Sunday afternoon every week. Should I be concerned about the leaf browning and leaf drop?
