Ames Forester


It was getting late in spring quarter before the City of Des Moines, Iowa decided to hire me for the summer to work on an oak wilt survey. I then became aware that three other ISU foresters would also be employed by the Des Moines Forestry Department. We were all old summer camp companions so no introductions were necessary. Dave Binegar, Pat Lynch, and myself chose to find an apartment in Des Moines and Raldo Schneider, the best tree climber I ever saw, commuted from Ames every day, or almost every day. Also employed were Dennis Schulte an entomology major, and Dan Hertel, an ente~ing freshman in forestry at ISU.
