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!

Good luck with the definitely have winds out there

Thanks Gloria!
