If you can create a mini-bramble thicket around the young trees, they will
grow with a better form and less deer damage on the way to being savannah
climax trees- this is essentially what you can see happening in untended
fencerows.
And the final result will be what you see in many pastures; cows are
actually quite good at increasing fertility in the shade of a (HUGE) apple
tree.
And tagging back to fruit trees for timber- you'll get a 6-8ft saw log in
the end.
It'll work quite well until we successfully reintroduce elephants to N.
America.
