This is my first post in the forum. Thanks Stephan for coming on and answering questions! We are at the very beginning of our forest gardening planning/planting, are in zone 6a. I was just wondering if you have any "if I knew then what I knew now" advice? Maybe your top 3 recommendations for starting a food forest or larger scale permaculture orchard. (I bet you've got some very happy bees too). Cheers!

Hmmm Donna 'if I knew then what I knew now' have you got 2 hours?? Actually the film is full of them. I made most every kind of mistake you can imagine. I'm actually running out of possible mistakes since I've covered most of them.
May I suggest the film, it will honestly save you years of trial and error, mostly error.
Biggest costly one I ripped out my old orchard then discovered overgrafting (explain it well in the film). Don't rip them ALL out.
 
I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
