I suspect once you grow out the the walking onions two years your original three will do very well by your trees. The bulbuls are meant to stay attached to the mother plant to ensure reseeding. The mother (large onion) plant will fight and win against any weed/ grass. Im going to try this next year as I will be on my third year on some of my plants

I planted them around my fruit trees and they either got accidentally pulled out with grass, or were just too wet during the spring or something. I had planted about 30 of them, and only three survived. I moved them to a raised garden bed, and they are doing much better there. I have a hard time growing any alliums other than chives, though...

My motto for up here has been that it is hard to grow veggies but easy to grow grass, so I grow animals that eat grass and eat them. Love my lamb! Cows have been too expensive to get so far, but I do have two pigs now, and a milking goat, and hoping to keep expanding slowly and let the animals do the work for me. Going to experiment with hugelkultur this coming summer.

I tested something similar with less soil builders last year on rather poor soil and got surprisingly good production from it. I'm hoping to do some more land like this spring as well.

As such it is often possible to get a building permit for a home with a "Masonry Heater" Though acceptance varies widely from place to place.
Usually if a Dwelling gets an occupancy permit the insurers will usually fall into line ! Regular wood stoves installed to code are
generally easier to gain acceptance .
Hope this answers your question and is useful, for the good of the crafts ! Big AL
