I'd like to put N-fixers as every third tree or so in an mixed species orchard (Lake Geneva Region, Switzerland) but I'm wary of introducing "alien lifeforms" that will take over in the wild... any suggestions? The orchard might become a showcase of ancient cultivars too.

I have to admit I'm impressed by your foresight.  Much easier to prevent a problem than fix it.
