Not the mother goose kind!

I want to start a tree nursery for my personal supply. I have 50 acres I want to put into sylvopasture. I have collected lots of butternut, walnut, honey locust and black cherry seeds/nuts.  I am storing them in an un heated barn  all winter to cold stratefy them.  Plan is simply to plant them in rows as if they were an annual crop  and mulch with woodchips .  Its a simple plan but there must be more to it than than.  

Can anyone recomend any good books on the subject?

Next year ill diversify with acorns and apple seeds.
