    I want to purchase a some seedlings for planting a windbreak. Probably a couple varities of pine and spruce. What's the best way to get some? How much should i expect to pay if i bought 100?

    Check with the state, they are usually about as cheap as you can get.

    Ordered some from the State Forester. Ended up paying about $0.57 per tree, most of which was shipping.

    Bought 100 norway spruce and 100 chestnut oak for this very purpose through the Indiana state website given above. Cost about $80. Should get a call soon from them to pick up and then the fun gets started!

    Put a windmill. My neighbor did it and I haven't seen the wind blow since.

    I've ordered bare root seedlings from Musser Forests and had pretty good luck.

    Ah that unpredictable thing we refer to in the industry as the "wind resource"
