Forest gardens are definitely not orchards. For one, they're designed to
resemble (or be) natural ecologies as much as possible, and therefore
look very different; and two, most of the food in them doesn't actually
come from the trees (or rather, doesn't come directly from the trees --
again, the point is to be a healthy ecology), so they function and
operate very differently.
