SUBURBAN NOISE CONTROL WITH PLANTINGS AND SOLID BARRIER COMBINATIONS. RESEARCH BULLETIN

The study of suburban noise control is in response to a demonstrated need for reduced noise levels in residential areas. It is an extension of two previous studies. 'Trees and Shrubs for Noise Abatement' and 'Tree-covered Landforms for Noise Control.' The major objective was to determine effective means for using plant materials to reduce noise in suburban residential areas, particularly traffic noise. Neighborhood noise, such as that generated by power lawnmowers or other small internal combustion engines, was also included in the study.
