Ideally something that will grow in the PNW

Locusts grow well in the PNW I believe.

Hmmm...Know of a deep rooted leguminous tree? Say one that would be compatible with woodland herb production?

Whatever you do, DO NOT order seeds from "White River Source" nursery in Richmond, Indiana. I ordered and paid for Alder, pine nut and Peashrub seeds, then when they didn't send them or return e-mails, I learned the hard way that they have a history of ripping people off. ops:

I found this after I got cheated by them:

I strongly recommend JL Hudson:
http://jlhudsonseeds.net/

I know that he offers black locust and Siberian Pea bush/Tree.  Probably several others.
I have dealt with him for years, and never any surprises!  They are in their 100th year, and the present Owner/Operator has been there about 40 years.

His prices are quite reasonable.  Order 1 or 2 packets from him and he will send you a catalog (all seeds listed by their Latin names). with your order.  The catalog is a great reference book on plants.

Check out the Acacia section. Now that's a wide variety!  The most variety of all the leguminous trees.  In Robina (Locust) all they carry is Black Locust.

i cannot sugest more implicitly how important it is for permies to save seed and spread it round of poineering legumes
 
Acetylsalicylic acid is aspirin. This could be handy too:
