Natural wind break barriers
In order to remediate the damaging effects of
the wind, the use of wind break barriers is becoming increasingly
widespread particularly in the agriculture sector.
How many times have we seen natural bushes or rows of trees on the
sides of the roads we normally drive along or along rivers without
asking ourselves of their importance and without considering that
in their absence there would be a rapid progression of wind erosion?
Originally natural wind breaks were created by using for instance
Cypress trees, which are ideal for their quick growth and the thickness
of the foliage, above all for defending from sea winds; the Tamarisk,
suitable in those areas characterised
by the presence of winds full of saltiness, or the Eucalyptus, used
as a main wind break to break the violence of the winds at first
However, although living wind breaks embellish the landscape, they
a long period for growth and house parasites and need watering,
fertilising and maintenance in time.
