Yes, many have started, and it is getting more popular every day. We have lots of Zone 5 lands and lots of monoculture. Only people that have big tractors can get some yield from the planting monoculture. That's why I m thinking to use permaculture on all my land. I have like 5 Acres of land. On most of it is planted Paulownia Elongata. So I will need guild rules for this. Elongata is Chinese tree that grows fast.
Yes, that is great, but i dont have my hives there. So i m looking to plant food for my self. I have asparagous and tomatoes. Is it good to plant that near Elongata? I was thinking to place comfrey just below the trees and then next to comfrey i plant tomatoe and asparagous. is that a good idea?
Paulownia is a desired hardwood. You can start making money buy selling some thinned or coppiced trees. The fuzzy leaves build great soil, and are biomass rich. The leaves are also profitable. The leaves can be raked, and baled for animal feed. For your own animals or to sell or trade. Since the trees grow so fast, they are good candidates for copping, for spoons handles, poles, and walking canes or staffs. Larger trees being good for furniture. You can take cuttings and sell babies. They are nitrogen lovers, and a large tree that will consume a lot of nutrients. So, your idea of heavy supplements, ie, comfrey and legumes is a great one, and a good start to prepare the soil for whatever your heart desires to grow. The trees do prefer low ph soils, so I'd imagine things such as blue berries and other acid loving plants would not like the same soil. Just my 2 cents.
