Why fight Mother Nature and hang on to disease prone native species only to have it perish, rather than tough, drought and disease resistant “invasive” species?  I just began working on changing a cattle farm to agroforestry - a diverse, edible, low-maintenance, chemical-free, nature-driven, mixed trees-berries-wild-vegetable orchard that shall provide food for foragers of future generations.  I don’t know much but internet community is a generous collaborator.  All it really takes is sun, rain and patience.  Infinite patience solves infinite problems.
