As with farmstead windbreaks, a single row Conifers for single-row field windbreaks book spruce or pine planted at least on the north and west sides of the field is best. Planting on all sides gives even greater protection.

If, on the other hand, you want to ensure that snow windbreaks with Conifers for single-row field windbreaks book and kill upland game birds that have concentrated in the windbreak for protection. A row of shrubs or dense conifers (snow trip row) planted to feet on the windward side of a narrow windbreak will help prevent this.

The trip row also will help prevent snow from breaking up the trees in the windbreak.

Farmsteads and livestock areas needing protection from winter winds require multiple row windbreaks with high densities. Typically, these windbreaks have two or three rows of conifers, one or two rows of tall hardwoods, and one or more rows of   choice on the inside row and use the remaining rows to establish the desired shape.

A windbreak will be most effective when placed at right angles to the winds. In Iowa, winter protection from the normally prevailing northwest winds is optimal.
