Searching for tree seeds

Hey y'all,I'm in search of tree seeds - fruits, nuts, fodder, N fixers, etc. Do you have favorite seed/nut sources or cultivars? I'm looking for production and vigor. Disease resistance will reveal itself over time (I buy into Mark Shepard's approach to selection). My zone is 7b, but I expect it will feel more like zone 9 by 2050, and hope for species that can live in zones 5-9. Yay weather volatility!See More

"You could also align felled trees on contour (or 1% slope towards ridges) to slow runoff and increase nutrient retention during heavy rains. (Think keyline design). Making brush piles for wildlife sounds like a lot of extra work."
