Habitat modification is the best way to control vole damage. Keeping grass mowed short will reduce food resources and cover, that will reduce vole numbers in the area.

The pdf on control of voles in apple orchards would have tips that would be applicable to a windbreak. The page is: http://web.extension.illinois.edu/wildlife/directory_show.cfm?species=vole
