Abstract:One limitation to the establishment of shelterbelts in some sections of Oklahoma and Texas, is the natural occurrence of Phymatotrichum root rot in the soil, rendering such sites unsuitable for standard plantations. Experimental tests have shown that none of the tree or shrub species used was immune to infection but a few proved to be highly resistant. A five-row shelterbelt of resistant species is suggested which should provide satisfactory protection for many years.
