I planted some hazelnuts in my orchard and if you keep the sucker cut off, it will be a small tree.  This year would have been the first year that they bloomed and the April freeze got the blossoms, but the trees are doing well.  You live in about the same zone (5a) as I do, so they should work for you.  I don't think they grow very tall.

That's interesting. I never thought about nuts, and I didn't realize 
that hazelnuts were bushes. I figured nut trees would be too big and not 
productive enough to bother with.

Hmm,... I'll have to think about it, but cherries still sound more 
appealing, I think. Still, if I can plant a self-pollinating sweet 
cherry, I might hold off on planting another. There's really no reason I 
absolutely HAVE to fill up every square inch of my yard right away, is 
there? :-D
