In this series of videos Sean (of Edible Acres, Trumansburg, NY) is documenting a transition from woodland to future orchard on one of the Edible Acre properties.

Sean does a great job in all his videos of illuminating his thought process and exploring work flows that he's found valuable. There's a kernel of inspiration in all Edible Acres videos (for me at least). So don't forget to subscribe and visit his website; Edible Acres

Hi Sean, I enjoyed watching a couple of your videos here! One question I had was: in your "Orchard Design 6 - Guilds Develop [...]" video at the 7:22 you said you had a tree growing with some plant "leaning all in to it which has made it more or less invisible to predation through the winter," but I didn't catch what plant it was. I played it back several times and it sounds like "anna's hysthas". What is the name of this plant and how does it mask your tree from predators?

I believe it would have been 'Anise Hyssop'... THis is a potent aromatic plant which helps to deflect (at least a bit) browsing pressure from wildlife...  Plants in the mint family, the onion family, etc, all very strongly scented, can help.
