On a very cold and still day, you are losing less heat than on a windy and equally cold day. And as your windbreaks mature your benefits will increase. Using trees and shrubs with low crowns make the best windbreaks. If you plant an evergreen in combination with a wall or natural berm it will “lift” the wind above the house. However don’t plant evergreens on the south side so that you can get warmth into your home from the sun.
