Nut Year?

It is now three years since I planted four cob trees in the area that I have decreed will be an orchard. Perhaps this will be the year that I will have a crop of nuts. The trees seem healthy enough but despite the presence of both male and female flowers on all four trees no fruit have set in the years to date. There are quite a few hazel trees in the nearby hedgerows so on the face of things there is no shortage of pollinators whether from the cob trees themselves or their wild cousins.
