Ames Forester


The Holst State Forest has been under Forestry Club administration since 1947. One of the first (and one of the only) major club projects on the forest was the planting of conifer plantations. Upland areas near the forest entrance (Fig. 1) which had been cultivated during the war were reforested by the club in the late 1940s. The 1948 Ames Forester said that "the purposes of this . . . planting operation will be 1) reforestation, 2) experimentation on three soil groups, 3) demonstration of windbreaks and coniferous plantation in Iowa, and 4) the future realization of products."
