Over time the conifer will completely replace the broad leaf species if you plant them together. They reproduce. They create a marvelous canopy. Nothing grows under it but ferns and certain wood sorrel. Not a smart management plan over the long haul.

Not strictly true. There are many beautiful mixed woodlands with intimate mosaics of broadleaves and confers with diverse ground layer vegetation. It all depends on careful management.
