The Freeborn County Soil & Water Conservation District can assist landowners with farmstead and field windbreak design, species selection, on-site layout, and planting equipment rental.


Each soil type has a Conservation Tree & Shrub Group (CTSG). A CTSG represents a summary of climate and soil conditions that affect tree or shrub growth and survival. This number helps us determine which trees/shrubs would be best to plant for each soil type and is one of the first step we take when assisting landowners with tree selection.
