We live on Harveys Lake, in a house that was built in the 1880s and has 6 1/2 acres of property around it. Sadly, most of our huge hemlock trees have succumbed to disease, and we have had to have them cut down.
For environmental reasons, among others, I would like to plant trees on the property to replace them. Can you suggest what kinds of trees would do well here? Fruit trees would be nice to have. We also wonder if there are any American chestnut hybrids out there that would do well here.
Many thanks for your help.
