Lawrence "Buster" Burkhart loved his tree farm, and the many people he met working with forestry. Buster's concern for the environment and the forest resource was well known in Appanoose county, as well as the rest of the state of Iowa. As one of southern Iowa's best and well known furniture and cabinet makers, Buster knew the true joys of working with wood. He shared this joy with people in the local community as well as with people far away with similar interest in the field.
