The purpose of the Northwest Ohio Field Windbreak Program is to plant field windbreaks that provide protection against wind erosion and wind damage to crops. The windbreaks may also provide food and cover for wildlife. Plantings where the sole purpose is the protection of home sites or farmsteads, landscaping, or ornamental use are not eligible for this program.
