|Collection Name||RG2539 Shelterbelt|
By the spring of 1937, the devasting effects of drought and dust storms had caused millions of tons of topsoil on the Great Plains to be blown away. This led to the planting of trees for windbreaks or shelterbelts on farms. This collection consists of photographs showing various shelterbelts in Nebraska.
Eighteen photographic prints showing various farms in Nebraska with shelterbelts. Many of the photos are aerial views that give perspective to the size of the shelterbelt and stages of tree growth.
