Forest Health Forester
Iowa DNR foresters conduct surveys and evaluations and monitor forest insects, forest diseases, invasive plants, and forest management practices. This is done to determine the status, changes, and trends in forest health conditions.
Foresters use the data from ground surveys, aerial surveys, and other sources to develop comprehensive management approaches to address forest health issues that affect the sustainability of Iowa’s forest ecosystems.
The findings are compiled on a yearly basis into forest health reports:
