31,000 trees planted to hold soil in area

More than 31,000 trees covering 76 acres were planted this spring in eight counties through the Northwest Ohio Field Windbreak Program, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources announced yesterday.

Thirty new windbreaks to reduce soil erosion and protect crops from wind damage were planted in Crawford, Hancock, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, and Wood counties.

The Northwest Ohio Field Windbreak Program is voluntary and open to landowners in 17 Ohio counties where soil erosion from wind is a problem.
