Forest Health Reports / Highlights

Iowa Department of Natural Resources Forester’s conduct surveys, evaluations, and monitor for forest insects, forest diseases, invasive plants, and forest management practices.  This is done to determine the status, changes, and trends in forest health conditions. The Forestry Bureau utilizes the data from ground surveys, aerial surveys, and other data sources to develop a comprehensive management approach to address forest health issues that affect the sustainability of Iowa’s forest ecosystems.  The findings are compiled into a Forest Health Highlights for each year and can be found below.
