Going to Jerusalem

Tomorrow, I am going to Jerusalem in order to collect material for some Tu be'Shevat articles. For secular Israelis, Tu be'Shevat is very much connected to the fruit of the Land of Israel as well as with the traditional tree planting. In chassidic circles, however, the Tu be'Shevat Seder is one (if not THE) most important event. 

If anyone can recommend any sources, I would very much appreciate it. Of course, Chabad has lots of material but also further chassidic groups and commentators: The Sefat Emet, the Arizal or the Shem MiShmuel, for example.
