I'm working on a permaculture design for my property, I'm planning a designed disturbance of removing some trees and using them as firewood and lumber. After that I'd like to plant an instant succession food forest. The book Edible forest gardens tells you to design for the horizon/climax state and then work backwards from there. So if your horizon state is 25 years you draw in all those plants at full maturity and then work the timeline backwards in say 10 or 5 year increments. Does anyone have a design they can share that shows these 5 or 10 year increment states and the climax state? I work best with examples so I was hoping the permies.com hive-mind might have some resources they could share!

If there are no examples, I will end up posting some here of my design .

It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
