Join Us!

Through the Iowa Grove we share urban forestry educational resources, upcoming events and all of your photos, videos, discussions and questions. You can also create your own profile, photo “groves” of trees you have planted to commemorate special events, and communicate with your fellow tree enthusiasts here in Iowa and across the country.

About Us

The motto of the Iowa Department of Natural Resource's Bureau of Forestry is to serve the people by caring for their forest resources. To that end, the Bureau of Forestry offers a variety of programs and services that assist public and private landowners, both rural and urban, to manage and protect their trees and related resources.

The Iowa Urban and Community Forestry Council
is an advisory group on urban and community forestry issues, policies and needs.
