Corylus jacquemontii Decne., Voy. Inde 4: 160 1844. (Syn: Corylus colurna var. lacera A.DC.; Corylus lacera Wall. [Invalid]; Corylus tiliacea Decne.);
This huge tree, known by locals as ‘Jangli Badaam” due to its edible fruit was present occasionally on the trek…id please…they say fruit is ready in October.
Hazelnut, Corylus colurna
Common part of dry fruits here in USA.
Corylus jacquemontii Decne. (Corylus colurna var. lacera A. DC.) treated as synonym of C. colurna by Flora of Pakistan is treated as accepted name by The Plant List.
Corylus colurna from the way to Ghangriya
Locals call this jangli badam
Corylus jacquemontii is now an accepted name.
I remember … too has already uploaded it – thanks to him too.
Have seen this plant – could not get good photos due to bad light.

Corylus jacquemontii Decne. … (family: Betulaceae)
1 AUG 12
Govind Ghat – Ghangaria trail … 5800 – 10160 ft
Ulmus wallichiana: Ulmus wallichiana Planch., also known as the Kashmir Elm.
This tree is not common in Uttarakhand. I know only two places in the state where it is present.
This picture was taken by …, IFS, UKFD from Mundali Village, Dehradun District.
If I am not wrong, your plant does not seem to be Ulmus wallichiana. your plant has much longer and sharper teeth than met in Ulmus wallichiana.
I have photographed both U. wallichiana and U. villosa from Kashmir and will upload them soon.
I suspect your plant may be Corylus
Perhaps another crucial difference is the number of lateral nerves which are 7-8 pairs in Corylus colurna as against 15-18 pairs in Ulmus wallichiana.
