Planting a windbreak

Windbreaks that Work publication coverA windbreak is a tall, dense, continuous wall of vegetation meant to protect structures, roads or any other important areas from strong, driving winds, soil erosion and snow accumulation. A windbreak can also provide wildlife habitat, pleasing aesthetics and help lower energy costs for landowners. The Wisconsin state nurseries offer a variety of shrubs, hardwoods and conifers that landowners can use to enhance their property.

Get information on how to create a windbreak from your local forester, nursery staff or our "Windbreaks that Work" [PDF] publication (FR-070).
