I've been cleaning up an area on our property, thinning out Eastern Redbud trees, still more to do. The soil in this area is hummus rich (most of the lot is sandy clay), but super-high in potassium. Wondering if this would be a suitable area to start a food forest?
Hi Cori. The area looks very nice. Regarding you question, I think any area with trees is good for other trees (eg.

You can ask around and chances are those varieties are traditionally planted in the area because the suit the conditions.
