Turkey has a considerable potential in terms of plant variety depending on its geographical location and rich natural resources. However, it is observed that this variety of plant species is not referred for the urban landscape planting designs. Increased demand and easy access have greatly increased the use of exotic species. However, in today's conditions where water resources are diminished, essential consideration should be given in order to use the natural species. It should not be forgotten that the natural species have adapted to the ecological characteristics of their living spaces better than the exotic species. It is also seen that the use of exotic species has to some extent led to the loss of the urban identities and the traditional structures have deteriorated. For this reason, in this study, the natural distribution areas, dendrological characteristics, ecological requirements of Corylus colurna, which is a natural species of our country have been determined and their functional and aesthetic properties have been investigated and explained referring to the planting application examples.
