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.
