李天舒的论文“Protecting the Breadbasket with Trees? The Effect of the Great Plains Shelterbelt Project on Agriculture”已被国际期刊Land Economics正式接受发表。
摘要：Wind erosion is detrimental to agriculture. Planting shelterbelt trees is a common strategy to protect vulnerable areas. I estimate the impact of shelterbelts on agriculture while instrumenting the endogeneity of planted location with a designated zone under the Great Plains Shelterbelt Project - a massive tree-planting operation implemented in 1935-42. I find a shift from cropland to pasture associated with higher shelterbelt coverage due to differential productivity changes in livestock and crop production. The revenue increase from livestock was contributed by cattle, while the decline in crop production mainly occurred in western counties due to impeding subsequently emerged irrigation technology.
