I am doing reasearch on hedgerows as productive spaces on farms.
My thought are that farmers would be more willing to keep and 
maintain them for wildlife corridors and wind and soil erosion 
control if they were also producing lumber, nuts, fruits and other 
perennial crops. Anyone have experience using black walnut, 
hickory, chestnuts, hybrid willow "Austrees"
and shrubs such as blueberry, lamarkii or others for thier 
commercial value as well as a hedgerow? I am primarily studying 
land that is used for potato production.
