If you are interested in an agroforestry  point of view you might want to 
check out the agroforestry newsgroup, and also try to find some journal 
articles about the "Nelder Wheel' which is a field trial to determine the 
optimum spacing between trees that gives best growth in both the pasture/crop 
and the trees.

otherwise check out your local/state forestry department they would have 
everything you need
