Abstract

Trees and shrubs planted in windbreaks have many on-farm benefits such as reducing energy consumption, controlling odor, protecting buildings and livestock from snow and wind, and improving aesthetics. Another rewarding benefit of windbreaks is to provide habitat for wildlife. In this fact sheet, we discuss ways to improve the suitability of windbreaks for wildlife while retaining other desired benefits.
