The Influence of Windbreaks in Protecting Citrus Orchards
Windbreaks probably receive most intensive attention in the citrus region of California. With a bearing orchard worth as much as $5,000 per acre, considerable money can be spent for windbreaks to protect the citrus trees from the high winds. It is estimated that it pays to devote 10 per cent of the orchard area to windbreak trees and to spend $15 per orchard acre for windbreak maintenance. To get effective protection the windbreaks are planted 300 to 400 feet apart. The author also discusses wood lattice frames, which have come into some use recently for protecting new orchards and to give quick protection while the windbreak trees are getting established.
