Hi Folks,

I'm planning on planting some trees and bushes in a sort of hedgerow/shelter belt fashion along the inside of a 7 foot wire deer fence. Some species include chestnut, antanovka apples, black locust, mulberry and sea berry. My primary goal is not to create a living fence, rather to grow some food, lessen the wind, and provide habitat and shade.

How far from the deer fence should the trees go?
