Interested in Plant guilds for a small fruit tree orchard, on contouring slope I have dug some swales in the dry alluvial south facing soils of Edgewood. This area receives a lot of strong wind current & solar heat, there are juniper trees currently but not enough to act as a wind barrier for the fruit trees (Apricots mostly). Any suggestions for wind hardy tree's or methods for shielding? Companion planting with Apricots? Thanks!

You might want to post your question on the Urban Farmers group or check with the Bernalillo County Cooperative Extension Office.  They are really very helpful and not all about the chemicals, either.(http://aces.nmsu.edu/county/bernalillo/).  Joran Viers is the head honcho for Bernalillo county and he's full of helpful information. Good luck with the trees....you definitely have winds out there

Thanks Gloria!
