Are you planting the walnuts and apples to later harvest them to sell the fruit and nuts, to sell the timber when mature or because you like them?

I think you need to find an expert. Here's a place to start.

My in-laws had a tree farm in CA, but that was in the '80s and I wasn't really involved in it. Theirs was a softwood tree farm. Christmas trees and pine and fir timber. I remember something about trees being long term capital gains when sold...not inventory, but that's about it. Like I said it was awhile ago.
