I have an ant hill at the base of one of my fruit trees, and it seems to be actually making the tree healthier.
I also have some veggies growing near and out of the ant hill, and they are among the most healthy plants of their kind. I tossed some seeds onto the ant hill on purpose when I planted them just to see how they would do.
Was also reading the other day on how ants prey on and can help control a large amount of fruit tree pests.
As long as the ants don't overwhelm everything, I'm planning to let them have their place in the food forest.

I’ve also spotted some leaf curl on my apricot, cherries and pear.
