Great answers guys !

I probably won't be planting this year as i'm focusing on keyline design but these are great ressources ( grimo, Badgersett, The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources tree facility )

The book seems to be a great starting point so it looks to me like we have a plan and solved this one

I'll try to post pictures for everyone so everybody can see the progress and get some motivation to act on their farming journey

Hi my fellow permaculture goofballs !

I bought a farm last year and i'm in the process of installing a restauration ag. system.
The only thing ? I'm kind of on a budget and I really can't afford to buy trees at a nurserie...
That's a problem right !
So I tought I'd ask you guys for help !
This is actually my first post but I've consulted the forums for 6 months now and I know you guys are a
great bunch of people !

Here is a short list of what might interest me :

Hazelnuts
White oak
Currants
Korean bush cherry
automn berry
elderberry
seaberry
black berry
goosberry
Plums
Pears
(I've got all the apple seeds Icould ever want so i'm covered on that ! )

Or any thing that will grow in a zone 4 climate
I would also like a chestnut but same problem ( ther are none in the supermarket, and even if there were I couldn't know if they'll survive the winter )

Some of them I can get at the grocery but since I don't know if they'll suit the climate I tought I'd ask your advice or help !

I do have hazelnut bush on my property but they are ''Corylus cornuta'' they go up to zone 2 but I haven't found any productive ones
Would the ones at the supermarket survive the winter ?

Any toughts or comments would be appreciated !

I would also be happy to pay shipping cost plus some extra if you guys would have something for me

Thanks for taking the time !
