Main canopy can be of mixed planting (broadleaf/conifer) at 2-3 metres spacing for capturing ammonia from housing only or 3-4 m for shelterbetls with livestock ranging underneath. The canopy at the front of the shelter belt should be open to allow the plume to enter.
The backstop trees should be of a conifer type or evergreen or something which can make a thick barrier. Spacing should be 2m or less (if appropriate) to achieve a good barrier.
