Are you nuts about Ohio Buckeyes?  Here's a link from Ohio State on Growing an Ohio Buckeye Tree.

A good link for the backyard fruit grower, with information and sales of "lower maintenance/less pest-spray" fruit trees, Grandpa's Orchard in Coloma MI is close to Toledo's USDA hardiness zone.

Cornell University provides a detailed assesment for selecting trees for an urban environment in this downloadable book/PDF, with trees hardy into Zone 6 (Toledo is Zone 5B).

A weekly gardening e-newsletter published by The Ohio State University Extension is the Buckeye Yard and Garden onLine.
