Hello, In all the food forest diagrams you see vines up in trees. I have a 25'-35' Doug fir in my yard I was thinking about growing hops up into and was wondering if anyone has tried this? I guess my question is, will the hops harm the growth of the Doug fir at all?
Location: Colorado. San Juan Mountains. Zone 4b and Virginia. Clinch Mountain. Zone 7a..

I was thinking about trying the same thing. My concerns were, ease of harvest and lack of sunlight. Although growing them on a low tree/shrub like a Rhody would certainly solve the ease of harvest problem.
