So the property I have is about 13 acres forest, 13 acres of swamp. It's in upstate NY ~10 miles from Lake Ontario. I want to develop a strategy for planting vegetation that could potentially deliver outputs in some form. I suppose I am thinking of edibles, but any of the other f's would be welcome in informing the planning stage, particularly medicinal herbs. I am interested in avoiding anything that might be labeled invasive or any modifications that would destabilize the balance of the wetland. Also any suggestions for buffer vegetation for the surrounding areas that could also deliver an output? I am interested in putting in split log trails into the wetland to allow for travel through this area eventually if I can be sure it won't stress the wildlife out too much, but for now, I would want to work with the existing edge. We have skunk cabbage growing in there now and hemlock. There are areas ranging from shade to full sun, although around the edge, shade is dominant. Do any species of flora come to mind? I'm open to trying to propagate species from cuttings from similar wetlands if suggestions are not commercially available.
