  Almost every farm house in Nebraska still have a windbreak around the house and barn buildings. Nebraska like Kansas has many trees that have been planted by parents or grand parents. It seems that my uncle's parents, my grand parents, were more into fruit trees than wind breaks. I think the old orchard is gone now but the wind break lives on. Project Methods Six, 40 to 45 acre windbreak systems and five, 4-acre exposed or non-protected fields were established in The windbreak systems and the control fields are farmed conventionally with a wheat/corn/soybean rotation. Weather conditions are monitored on the area as part of the High Plains Climate Center's network of weather stations. Trees planted apart from each other around the farm can provide lumber, fruit, fodder, and other products while letting sunlight reach crops. Trees planted in rows on the windy side of crop or pastures land can provide a windbreak.
