Pacay grows naturally along streambanks, and needs some water. Creating a micro-climate of herbecous or small shrubs might give it enough shade to grow well without much water.

Pacay will probably become the overstory, so adding understory/grasses to the windbreak might be a good idea.

Dave, trees that grows naturally along streambanks are good as windbreak?
