We're working on transforming our new place. The only trees currently growing are a bunch of mature Siberian Elms. I'd like to start planting around them and take advantage of their nice canopy.
I'd love to hear suggestions of understory trees, bushes, etc. that produce fruit/nuts and would play nice with the elms. We're in zone 7b with an annual average rainfall of 11 inches. We do have access to irrigation, but will be employing other methods to reduce the amount of irrigation we'll need to use. Our soil is fairly alkaline, around 7.5.
