I would not recommend it because anything planted below the apples trees 
will compete for nourishment and can possibly bring unwanted pests or 
disease to your trees.

  I'm looking at all that wasted space underneath my newly planted apple 
orchard (all of six trees) and was thinking of planting some pumpkins 
underneath to keep the weeds down.  Has anyone tried this?  If so, how did 
the apples like it?
