Many of the windbreak suggestions apply.  Simply reduce the plan to one or two rows of trees.

Tree-Lined Entrances or Driveways

Blue Spruce can have a dramatic impact on the entrance to your farm or ranch. Some things to consider:

  • Do you prefer to plant trees directly across from each other down each side of your driveway or have the rows alternate?
  • Be careful about spacing the trees too closely – you do not want to create a snowfence in the driveway – let the snow blow through.
  • Plant them 10-15 feet away from the edge of the road – otherwise the trees will eventually encroach upon the drive.
