growing apple and pear trees

I live in South Central MO. I am clearing/thing out about 11 acres of woods. I want to plant in some apple and pear trees. I was thinking for ground cover I would use white clover. I have no experience here and looking for direction or suggestions. My woods won’t be completely cleared, but thinned out. I am concerned I may not get enough sun for apple or pear trees. Is there some general “rule of thumb” when it comes to spacing with these types of trees? Are there other beneficial plants I should incorporate? I need this to be low maintenance.

I am using Tordon RTU on the stumps to kill them. My top soil is very thin and if I have a bulldozer come in I won’t have any top soil left.
