Are you looking to create a break from a strong prevailing wind?
Arizona Blue Ice Cypress
What are the best types of trees to use?
To create the best wind break, select trees that grow 'wide' and NOT just tall. Oak trees while beautiful are not a good selection for this purpose. They generally do not have enough dense foliage.
There are a wide variety of cedar trees that we carry that make a good selection.
- Arizona Cypress,
- Blue Ice Arizona Cypress,
- Western Red Cedar,
- Italian Stone Pine,
- Elderica Pine,
- Pinyon Pine,
- Ponderosa Pine,
- Utah Junipter
How fast and large do these trees grow?
Different windbreak trees
All varieties of cedar trees are fast growing. Pine trees grow at a slower rate. However, Pine trees will grow to be very tall (some we have a Cluster Pine that is about 20' tall), while Cedar trees are shorter in nature (around 8 to 12 feet).
