Here is a field windbreak that is 15 years old and ½ mile long in Iowa. It is a total of 86 ft wide with Red Cedar on the outside (left side) spaced 8 ft apart. Next row is White Pine and European Larch spaced 10 ft apart in the row. Next two rows are hardwoods, 7 kinds of Oaks, Walnuts, Ash, Hickory, and Hackberry spaced 6 ft apart. On the inside (right side) is Norway and White Spruce spaced 12 ft apart. About ½ of these trees will be removed in the future a little at a time to give the others room to grow.
