  1. A living barrier that usually includes several rows of trees, and perhaps shrubs, located upwind of a farm, field, feedlot or other area and intended to reduce wind velocities. Windbreaks, also called shelterbelts, can reduce wind erosion, conserve energy or moisture, control snow accumulations, and provide shelter for livestock or wildlife.
  2. A planting of trees, shrubs, or other vegetation, usually perpendicular or nearly so to the principal wind direction, to protect such things as soil, crops, homesteads, and roads against the effects of winds, such as wind erosion and the drifting of soil and snow.
