NUTS! My recommended nut trees for a cold hardy permaculture food forest

Nut trees I’m growing:

– Hazelnuts
– Filberts
– Hazelberts
– Walnut (black, Carpathian)
– Butternut
– Buartnut
– Hickory
– Cold hardy almond
– Cold hardy pecan (may have died this winter)
– Heartnut
– Oak (acorn)
– Chestnut (various, mostly seedlings, Eng/Eu mix to try to restore them – likely to expand this in the future, especially in wilder areas)

Am I forgetting some? Possibly…

Which are my favorites?

It may change over the years, because right now only some of those are producing, but already I have some advice to give on what you SHOULD be growing, and what you may want to grow more selectively.

This is likely my last video before Christmas. Whatever your religion, holiday that you celebrate, I hope you are having a wonderful time with friends and family, and are being safe and secure.

Have a great end to 2022, and a wonderful start to 2023. Start planning that food forest, or where you are going to expand it!
