Work Starts on Great
Federal Windbreak Job
Additional facts regarding the re
cent announcement by Secretary
Wallace and Chief Forester F. A.
Silcox that work would start Im
mediately in connection with the
President's order allocating funds
for a 1,000 mile windbreak in the
prairie states have been received
here by Regional Forester C. J.
By direction of the President,
Secretary Wallace has authorized
the Forest Service to make expen
ditures for the present of only $10,
000,000 of the total sum of $15,000,
000 provided in the executive order.
The ultimate cost of the project is
estimated at $75,000,000, of which
over 90 per cent will go to farmers
largely for labor for plowing, fenc
ing, planting and caring for trees.
It is expected that 25 per cent of the
total expenditures can be made in
the next 12 to 18 months.
Beginning at the Canadian bor
der, this protection forest belt will
stretch down through the Dakotas,
Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and
into the Panhandle of Texas.
The area immediately affected
approximates 20 million acres. Of
this, about 1,820,000 acres will be
planted to trees. According to the
plan of the project, windbreaks run
ning north and south will be plant
ed one mile apart, making approx
imately 100 parallel windbreaks in
the 100-mile wide belt Each wind
break will be 7 rods wide, covering
14 acres out of each square mile or
approximately 2 per cent
The western border of this belt
will follow approximately the line
of 18 inches annual rainfall.
"This will be the largest project
ever undertaken in this country to
modify climatic and other agricul
tural conditions in an area that is
now constantly harassed by winds
and drought," F. A. Silcox, Chief
"The Great Plains have been suf
fering acutely from prolonged
drought. The economic and social
consequences are extremely ser
ious. The dust storm which recent
ly blanketed the country from the
Dakotas to the Atlantic seaboard
is an ominous reminder of the in
cipient desert conditions in the
Great Plains area.
"Man cannot change all the forces
of weather, but he can modify his
own surroundings. He can ame
liorate the effects of weather on a
large scale, just as he can around
his own home. If the surface veloc
ity of the wind over a wide area
can be broken and decreased even
slightly, soil will be held in place,
the moisture of the soil will be con
served, and havens of shelter will
be created for man, beast, and bird.
I his plan aims at permanent
benefit and protection of the Great
Plains west and east of it."
Only the land planted to the shel
ter strips will be acquired by the
government through purchase, lease
or cooperative agreement, Mr. Sil
cox explained. The areas in be
tween these shelter strips will re
main in private ownership, and con
sequently, farmers on this land will
be able to produce crops and live
stock under the most ideal condi
tions. Fencing the windbreaks Is essen

your Local Dealer or

Please send full information and name of near
tial for protection of the woodlands
against cattle. In many cases, ex
isting fences will be utilized.
This tremendous project Silcox
explained, is not without precedent.
On the contrary, it is based upon
the long-time experience of several
European countries, notably Italy,
Hungary and Russia. In those
countries, where shelter belts have
been used over a period of many
years and on an extensive scale,
farming enterprises have been sta
bilized and have succeeded even in
the worst seasons when farmers In
other areas have suffered serious
losses to their crops through ad
verse weather conditions.
"Furthermore, the planting of
shelter belts in the Great Plains
region is not an untried undertak
ing," Silcox added. "Since early
settlement of the prairies settlers
have frequently planted strips of
woods to protect their homes and
fields from the blistering winds of
summer and the cold blasts of win
ter. In more recent years, the Fed
eral and State Governments have
cooperated in encouraging wind
break planting by distributing trees
from their nurseries. The protec
tive influence of shelter belts has
been amply proved through re
search and practical demonstration.
All of the shelter belt planting,
however, even of recent years, has
been of a scattered nature."
One of the first steps will be the
establishment of a chain of nurser
ies where the seedlings will be
grown for planting. Seed collec
tion and a limited amount of plant
ing will start this year. Large-scale
planting of the windbreaks will be
underway by 1936, and the entire
area, it is expected, will be planted
within the next 10 years, at a rate
of about 180,000 acres per year.
Trees of native origin will be
used. One of the best and most
adaptable trees of the region is
green ash, and this will be supple
mented by such species as native
forma of hackberry, elm and burr
oak on heavier soils, and on the
higher, lighter, and sandy soils,
ponderosa pine and red cedar may
be employed. In some cases, Black
Hills spruce and native Cottonwood
may be utilized.

The present exploration crews
are not only searching for new

sources of seed or plants of known
value and hunting improved types

the saving of good lands from waste
