We know that most people on the land want to do the best thing by their animals, pasture, crops, land and business. We also know that planting shelterbelts is something many farmers want to do. It's on the list. And it gets bumped most years by other costs - vet bills, repairs, fodder and the rest. 

Basalt to Bay has put together a bunch of brochures, specific to each industry, that help farmers understand the financial benefits of planting shelterbelts. These brochures are research-based and factual. They put the economic case for investing in shelterbelts and provide links to local information sources to help you get down and dirty with the trees.
