During summer they protect against hot, dry winds.

This paper aims to discuss shelterbelt history in Canada, and the environmental benefits.
Well-designed farm shelter can offer many benefits from providing stock shelter to reducing soil erosion and improving the microclimate for plants to grow in.
Good shelter systems not only improve pasture yields, animal health and production but they can also decrease stock #, The vertical scale of this diagram is greatly exaggerated.
So, what causes the beaded shelterbelts ?
Even though salty water is escaping to the surface at about the same rate throughout the area, it becomes much more concentrated near the surface in slightly higher areas, such as on the ridges between the ice-gouged grooves.
shelterbelts using indigenous species to provide shelter for stock and pastures, and provide a valuable place of habitat for local wildlife.

Creating practical shelterbelts The establishment of shelterbelts #, Permeable shelterbelts will reduce the wind speed, out into the paddock, for 10 – 15 times the height of the shelterbelt.
As well as shelter for stock, there are regional requirements for farmers to manage effluent and fertiliser runoff and improve water quality.
Environment Southland, for example, requires stock to be at least 3 metres from.
shelterbelts are proposed in the vicinity of a farm airstrip.
Tranzrail’s approval is needed before planting shelterbelts alongside railway lines.
