    The 2015 Sustainable Urban Forestry Training and Assistance Grant Application is now available.     

    This grant is intended to assist communities with populations greater than 5,000 by training and educating city staff, tree board members, elected officials, and community members in order to enable each community to develop and maintain a sustainable forestry program.  10 communities will be selected this grant cycle to receive intensive training (40 hours) by a team of DNR Forestry staff in tree id, tree inventory, tree planting and maintenance, and many other topics outlined in the attached materials.  Each community will receive a community tree management plan with canopy goals, scheduled maintenance, and planting schedule.

    This is a great opportunity to prepare and manage Emerald Ash Borer, train municipal staff in urban forestry best management practices,  as well as increase your urban tree canopy. 

    During the 2014 grant application cycle, we receive 19 applications, and awarded the grant to the following 10 communities, based on ranking: Atlantic, Fairfield, Grinnell, Marion, Marshalltown, Mason City, Muscatine, Oskaloosa, Pleasant Hill, and Storm Lake

    To apply to receive this training and assistance, simply read through the instructions here and then complete the application by September 1st, 2015.  Awards will be made October 1st, 2015, and training will begin in 2016, as outlined in the timetable in the application instruction documents.
