Help Me Find Trees & Plants for a NYC Terrace.

I'm looking for a referral to a supplier of quality and reasonably priced evergreen type trees and plants in and around NYC (also LI, NJ, Conn., etc.) This would need to be a store, nursery or garden center that offers delivery to Manhattan. I've been to the "plant district" in the city but I'm interested in researching other alternatives. Looking to purchase in the next two weeks. Thank you.

What are these caterpillar-like things on my hazelnut tree?

I have a hazelnut tree. Each year at this time, the tips of the branches extrude 2-3 inch long caterpillar-like growths which drop off. What are these called, and what is their function? This is undoubtedly a simple question which many can answer, but nevertheless hard to google.
