    We were approached by a poultry agency(friend of mine) to install windbreaks in our area. He said nobody was interested on our side of Maryland. He also has a landscape company that does these and said its pretty simple. The windbreak helps keep the temps in the houses and also hides the houses from the developments. The state has funding for these projects where they pay the farmer, farmer pays a landscape company to install.

    Anyone install these? Any tips?

    What are you questions, there is a cost share program in place. The cost would vary from area to area but in NC it is as follows:

    Site Prep - Plant Trees/Shrubs = $165.00 per acre
    Site Prep - Plant Trees/Shrubs/w/ Staked Tree Tubes = $286.00 per acre

    Looking at the thread title I envisioned a long pile of chickens 10 ft tall. :)(probably not helpful)

    Looks like some good money in that. Thats a massive landscape project.


    It will take years to grow into a dense tall tree line though...
