And he doesnt spray when there is alot of wind or the wind is coming toward us. So if I get a barrier of trees Should I still worry about something?
    Unless you see your grass/plants start to die, I wouldn't worry.

    OK. So would 30 ft be high enough to keep away aerial spray drift?

    And I just want to thank you all for taking time to answer my questions.

    If they're staying to the required wind factor rules 30ft trees should easily do it
    The spray is made to fall downwards and the aircraft flies at a really low level for max coverage and reduced wastage & potential damage from drift

    I just watched a plane spraying this morning (from a distance of 1-2 miles away) he flew lower than the trees beside the field. He almost touched the ground lol! I could hardly see any drift.

    Thanks again.
