Tree damage to crops

This shows soybeans that have had moisture sapped by a nearby tree.  One way to minimize this damage is to use a root plow at the edge of the filed to prune roots.  Trees on the windward side of a field save crop damage caused by wind and cold, so don't think you need to clear out the hedgerows to have good crops.  It just depends on the conditions.
