In the Great Plains and elsewhere, unchecked winds damage agricultural fields, orchards and gardens, feedlots, wildlife habitat, and other valuable lands. In the United States, tree planting to mitigate such damage has been encouraged by law since 1873, and extensive research in the U.S. and Canada has established standards for establishing and managing windbreaks. This is a summary of results of research and experience with windbreaks, and sources of technical information and assistance available to landowners, managers, and consultants. North. J Appl. For. 3:55-59. September, 1984
