The concept of planting trees 10- 20 feet apart (traditional advice) is not
much use in small gardens. Closer planting --Dave Wilson's idea -- is a big
help for those who live in urban areas with small backyards-- many of us
want more fruit so it is either the several trees together or
windrows/hedges or lots of grafts on one tree or do guerrilla gardening-
-planting trees on right of ways and grafting fruit on flowering trees in
public areas. Dave's Wilson's research and fruit trees are great - so if
this is a way to help fund it-fine with me. 

Many more small backyard fruit growers desires (and some commercial growers)
may be what is pushing more  research into developing more varied dwarfing
rootstocks and columnar apples.
