(I must confess some ignorance here) Brian, do you mean nitrogen fixing trees?
The nitrogen fixers I think of are black locust, and honey locust. I am northern temperate-centric, I know there are a bunch of trees and shrubs that are not native to my area that fix nitrogen (pea berry, perhaps?). So in my experience, nut trees and nitrogen fixers are not synonymous.
