Abstract: Hawaii is at the northern edge of the tropics,
where the prevailing winds are the northeasterly
trades. These winds are generally 8 to 20 miles per
hour, but gusts up to 40 miles per hour or more may
occur. These trade winds blow for 300 days or more
each year. During the absence of the trade winds, it
is possible to have "kona" winds from an opposite or
variable direction. This brief publication summarizes types of windbreaks for protecting garden plants.
