Lines of trees were planted as wind breaks after the devastating dust bowl of the 1930's. It was an attempt to stop erosion from the strong winds that blow from west to east across the prairies. Some farmhouses lie a half mile or more from the main road and before the trees leaf out in the spring, the tangle of branches arched overhead present a foreboding image like something out of a Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
