good point on keeping the chips in place, what about lining the beds every few feet with boulders if i can get them(not too implausible for me at this point) to trap heat and raise the wind up above the beds?
"which also lead to a question of directly sowing the tree seeds in a thick mulch layer on top of soil, is this plausible? "
on the snow drifts yes that is definately something i would like to do, they get very big sometimes, so lots of water, the question i suppose is how i go about that because its not all on one level and a swale may not work so well, so a big HOW?

i have course all the time.
had Nick Ferguson from Permaculture class room come and talk about wind. he showed us what we can do to plant more here and how to use the wind. he went back to PermaEthos and has class there for plant propagation.
If I can help let me know
