Looks like latitude and logitude markings over a large portion of map.

Zoom in and you'll see that they are trees.

No kidding! That's odd. Wonder why they grow that way. Water canals? I don't see roads...

That is amazing to me. The gaps from a distance looked so much like the markings of a Sharpee Marker, and the fact each line is so perfectly straight and spaced, I assumed we were seeing left over by a careless cartographer. So I labled it a "satelite error." I had no idea they were trees. I guess the lesson is to always check each map at every zoom level.

And why not just hedges of trees for separate fields ?

Yes, zoom in and you will see trees. However, trees require water to grow and there is a possibility that they are growing above silted-up canals originating from the Terek.
