Question by hart1955

I am a horticulturist who has recently moved from Washington State to a home 20 miles out on the prarie of Wyoming. I am having a hard time with the wind, and lack of wind breaks. Everything I have planted has a hard time with the heat and wind. I have tried planting 6-8 foot tall tree's for a wind break, but they soon die. I keep them watered but the wind takes a toll. HELP!!

Best wishes with your new landscape!
