Yes i've mulched fairly heavy about four foot around each tree so grass shouldn't be a problem nearby. I just was wondering if planting close to the tree now since they are so young would harm their progress so i was thinking cucumbers, melons, peas etc would be beneficial in surrounding areas for now with providing shade out grass and leave behind organic material to compost in place.

Ok i had a fee thoughts and wanted to get some feedback. Since my trees are still young, not fruiting, and without a canopy, would planting guilds now still not hurt the tree as in everything competing for energy and nutrients? I was thinking of planting watermelons and cucumbers amongst my trees to help shade out grass and retain moitsture longer and sow peas etc in the fall until the trees are more established. My only thing is that i don't know if doing that would be good or bad either with regards to robbing nutrients and energy from the soil and taking away from the trees.

Aha!! I thought i remembered reading once they could be used as a coffee substitute because of the caffeine content in the leaves!! This is a cool link about them.

Yes they sre everywhere around my woodline! I've used a tom for fencing and stakes and firewood/biochar. I bought some stuff last year that you brush on the area you cut off and it stops regrowth. These are in areas i don't frequent and in the future i plan to get goats in here so maybe they could keep them down. Are there any uses you know of for yaupon? Besides biochar lol.
