District Foresters are professional foresters that work with private landowners in regions throughout the state. They provide consultation and planning services related to timber sales, tree planting, and improving wildlife habitat or timber quality. They also provide guidance on cost share assistance programs and tax incentive programs. Professional foresters such as Iowa DNR district foresters and private forestry consultants should be the first point of contact for forestry projects.
Iowa State University Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic
The Iowa State University Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic provides diagnosis of plant problems (plant diseases, insect damage, and assessment of herbicide damage) and the identification of insects from the field, forest, garden, and homes.
National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) Forester
Foresters with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) work in close partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to provide forestry technical assistance and forest management planning to private landowners. They also assist landowners with enrollment in state and federal conservation programs. NWTF Foresters focus on forest management for a wide range of Iowa wildlife – not solely wild turkeys. Professional foresters such as National Wild Turkey Federation foresters and private forestry consultants should be the first point of contact for forestry projects.
Private Forestry Consultants/Contractors
