My one concern is that they'd act as habitats for rodents.

So my main question is, how would you all recommend introducing productive plants with the most minute change to the current system?

I would then back fill the hole with the unburnt timber (now rotten) while layering in the recently pulled 'weeds', and completing the effort with planting a fruit tree (or other). I then top dress with mulch, straw, winter rye, etc and let it go. I would then top seed in the spring with synergistic plantings to aid in moisture retention, nutrient accumulation, pollination attractants, etc, etc.
What do you think?

Cactusdan Hatfield wrote:Hello all,
I'm interested in an establishing a permaculture, perennially/tree based farm on 1-2 acres of an 18 acre lot in South Eastern South Carolina.
The land is pretty heavily wooded and I want to focus on maintaining the current system as much as possible while implementing a greater number of productive trees.
Any advice, thoughts, and questions are much appreciated!
