Forestry extension in Iowa has thoroughly reexamined its educational role in recent years. Traditionally, extension programs have focused on woodlot management for timber production, windbreak establishment and care, Christmas plantation establishment, and timber processing. During the past 10 years, a program element relating to proper use of wood in building construction was added. Beginning in 1974, major program emphasis has shifted and now presents some differences both in type or program and in concentration of resources.
