How Are the Great Plains Shelterbelts?
Abstract:Data presented here give details of survival and growth of the shelterbelts planted from 1935 to 1943 by the U. S. Forest Service in its Prairie States Forestry Project and by the Soil Conservation Service. The information is based on a systematic survey of 1,072 belts. The outstanding features brought out are the widespread interest of farmers and ranchers in the program, the better-than-expected survival and growth, a wide variety of benefits and values already derived from the comparatively young belts, the great importance of adequate cultivation, and some interesting silvical and management problems that are beginning to show up.
