Hazelnuts (Corylus) will sucker and sprout back from cut stumps without
spreading out and they are a traditional coppice species used for
firewood, poles, etc. The exception is the Turkish Tree Hazel which
is a non-suckering species. The late Cecil Farris in Michigan bred
some good quality varieties that were resistant to eastern filbert
blight, and it would be worthwhile to look into them. Remember that
for nut production you need two different clones that are pollination
compatible. Try searching for Cecil Farris's hazlenuts.

If anyone has other suggestions for more 'native' species that can fill
the ecological community niche I'm looking for (woody,
running/suckering, nitrogen-fixing, fuel-making, food-producing,
medicinal, small shrubs or herbaceous perennials), please let me know.
I am indeed in a very experimental phase here, and I welcome input +
discussion about this little forest garden design.
