My project is about how trees effect damage to a house during a tornado.
Is planting trees in front of a house to prevent tornado damage a good idea? What could go wrong with it?

- Project Question: Hi. I'm doing a project about trees affecting damage to a house during tornadoes and I need an interviewer!! I sent a question days ago with no response. Do you think planting trees in front of a house to prevent data is a good idea? How many trees do you think would be ideal? Would there be any problems with doing this?
Thanks a lot

It sounds like this is the question you are trying to answer with your experiment. But, some background research is always important. The question of whether trees around a house is helpful or harmful is something that a lot of people have thought about, especially given all the large storms we have had in recent years. A Google search for "trees hurricane protection" brings up a lot of relevant results. Here are a few reputable sources that I found helpful:http://pender.ces.ncsu.edu/2013/06/plan ... s-in-mind/http://hort.ifas.ufl.edu/treesandhurricanes/http://www.lsuagcenter.com/en/lawn_gard ... ricane.htm
