The Iowa Urban Tree Council (IUTC) is a volunteer council that works to advance the conservation and maintenance of urban forests throughout Iowa. The Council provides assistance and advice to the state urban and community forestry program, administered by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR). We work in partnership with all sectors to address local urban forestry issues by bringing together professionals, academics, government, industry, volunteers, and the general public.
Urban and Community Forestry has been defined by the Iowa Urban Tree Council (IUTC) as the planning, planting, and maintenance of trees and forest ecosystems within Iowa communities.
Recognizing that trees and forest ecosystems are vital components of Iowa communities, the mission of the Iowa Urban Tree Council is to provide guidance, leadership, and assistance to public officials, professionals, volunteers, and organizations in implementing urban forestry solutions.

The Iowa Urban and Community Forestry Council became a non-profit in 2013. With our new status, we had a name change and are now the Iowa Urban Tree Council. This process was done so the council could become more active in advancing urban forestry throughout iowa. With the council's 501(c)(3) status it can now accept donations.
