Community Forestry on a Military Base
Soc. Am. Foresters Natl. Convention
Windbreaks can be very effective in reducing crop water use and water evaporation from the soil surface. They also may be the only method to protect soil from wind erosion when little crop residue is available due to drought. Most farmers and ranchers, however, are living with windbreaks that are old-fashioned, outdated, and ineffective. Others have removed windbreaks because they are in the way or are considered unnecessary.
