FOR227: Windbreak Designs and Planting for Florida Agricultural Fields

Figure 8. Three-row Eucalyptus grandis (near side) planted in a regular row design as in Figure 7a. The lower portion of the trees lack branches and leaves, creating a very porous windbreak. Adopting an offset row design as in Figure 7b and incorporating a shrub or shorter tree row will reduce porosity.
