Don’t forget to get your tree order in!
It’s not too late to get your tree order into the Lower Niobrara NRD as the cold wind blows and the snow continues to fall this winter. It is the right time to start considering planting a new windbreak or filling in your old windbreak that has lost trees over the years. Windbreaks consisting of a variety of trees and shrubs, if properly planted, will reduce wind velocity, which impacts the distribution of blowing snow. Windbreaks can spread snow across protected areas to provide moisture for crops and rangelands, protect livestock by decreased rifting, and reduce energy cost.
