Q. When to Trim Contorted Filbert shrub or tree?

We have a scrub that needs to be trim back and are not sure when the best time to do it in Eastern Tennessee. It is beautiful just has not been trimmed and taken care of. We just bought the house and it has some unusual scrubs and trees but they were not trimmed in it looks like the last couple of years. Also a Holly that is about 10 feet tall.

Suckers should be removed as they appear.
Prune in winter or early spring during dormancy, just before new growth commences.
Thin a corkscrew hazel by removing up to one-third of the oldest and least attractive stems. Cut stems back to their parent branches. To encourage branches to grow outward rather than toward the center of the plant.
Train a corkscrew hazel shrub to grow as a small tree by removing the lower lateral stems during dormancy to create a trunk; this is best done the second year after planting. Continue removing any lower lateral shoots in subsequent years as necessary. Remove branches that do not contribute to the overall look of your small tree when performing normal thinning.

Corylus is a deciduous shrub. New leaves emerge every spring.

A newly planted tree can show signs of stress; curled leaves, yellowing leaves and leaf drop.
Provide daily watering for the first 2 weeks.

This can be normal as it is acclimating. Can you include a photo? I would apply dolomitic lime and wettable sulfur just in case. This will treat, and prevent further infection when used each spring.

Q. Contorted filbert trees

Will 90 degree heat damage the leaves on a contorted filbert tree and turn them yellow? What can be done about this?
I don\’t have a photo.

Heat won't directly cause the leaves to yellow, but during heat like that, the tree could be experiencing water stress, which could cause the leaves to yellow.

I would recommend increasing the water to the plant. This article will also help:
