Protecting from winter winds-basic question.
At the risk of sounding completely ignorant, I was hoping to get an answer to this question. While planting trees that 'need protection from drying winter winds', which side does the wind come from that I need to worry about?
I can plant this tree with protection (ie a row of other trees, a shed, the house, etc...) on the North side of the plant, the South side, the East side,or the West. I'm confused as to which would be best. Obviously light plays into the equation too but if I was to consider JUST wind direction-which side should I protect? Obviously I'm not going to hide the tree and protecting all 4 sides. Lol
If it helps I live in Southern CT with woods directly on the sides and back of my property. The front of my house (which also has woods but across the street-I'm the only house in a large cul-de-sac) faces South.
