Shelterbelts on the Great Plains: What's Happening?
Shelterbelts in many Great Plains states are being removed because they were not properly designed and located, because they are overmature and decadent, or because the land they occupy is wanted for other uses. A symposium held in Colorado during 1976 made clear that field shelterbelts and farmstead Windbreaks are still capable of providing protection, visual variety, and environmental enhancement for man, his crops, livestock, and wildlife. Government programs offer various forms of landowner assistance, and research is seeking to improve plant selection and management practices.
