The cost of planting individual trees is cost prohibitive (time and money). Closely spaced, these trees can be used as ground cover, and once the ground temperature drops other trees can easily be grown among them.

fence an area, even if its small then plant a large variety of seeds...

Fence a small area, like 10x10, plant with seeds or cuttings (no watering), and watch it flourish...this will guide you in the future.
For a larger plot you can use trees like gleditsia that have large thorns that even cows do not dare cross...they will grow fast and have multiple uses.
