Black Walnut Nut production and Intercropping

[Post to this category]
From: Edward Bratton

I recently purchased a 15 acre homestead in northern Illinois and plan to plant black walnut for nut production on a 15x15 spacing. I have read inter cropping with Christmas trees can be a way to add profit (planning on 5x5 spacing). What species of Christmas tree would be recommended for northern Illinois? I have read Noble fir can be most profitable but I'm not sure of its suitability in my setting and climate.
