Shelterbelt trees are an integral part of Alberta’s landscape. The management of soil, water and wind erosion can be minimized by utilizing trees in a planned manner. We encourage the use and can assist with information about shelterbelt nurseries. As the Prairie Shelterbelt Tree program is no longer available, please don’t be discouraged. The three nurseries below specialize in large volume orders and have shipping options available.
The Breton Classical Plots were established in 1929 near the Village of Breton, 100 km southwest of Edmonton, by the Department of Soils, University of Alberta. These plots were originally designed to find a system of farming suitable for the wooded soil belt. Today, the Breton Plots provide a model of how diverse cropping practices affect typical Gray Luvisolic soils.
