      and part2:

      I would appreciate knoledgeable or intuitivly accurate comments on
      the layout or anything, permaculture ideas included - I can change
      around the arrangement of trees quite easily. I tryed to plant with
      guild possibilities as regards the walnut - the Eleagnus and Apple.
      The sweet chestnut went along the botton because south is to the top
      of the plan and the field slopes downhill from top to bottom of the
      plan...thus this way they wouldn't shade anything else out.

      Thanks,

      Jim

          It does seem to be quite a regular grid. It does make maintanace easier
          but you won't get a natural a feel for the results.

            https://secure.agroforestry.co.uk/publs2003.html

            ...that apple, in actual fact, is one of the species that is
            problematic with Juglans! So much for pulling seemingly knolegable
            stuff from the web!
