Coalition for Iowa's Woodlands and Trees

The Coalition includes Trees Forever, Iowa Woodland Owners Association, Iowa Nut Growers, Iowa Tree Farm Committee, the Iowa Urban Tree Council and Trout Unlimited. Other partners concerned about trees and forests lend their support and voice. The Coalition has a consultant on retainer working on our behalf with a strong presence during the legislative session and throughout the year.


The Coalition urges lawmakers to:

  • increase funding for forest health
  • support Iowa DNR forestry
  • grow Iowa's tree canopy
  • appreciate the value of trees and natural areas
  • Oppose Senate File 5
  • Support Senate File 181 


Please join us at the Capitol in March and in writing to local legislators about why these actions need to be a priority.
