This paper deals with the present forest lands in southern Iowa counties, giving their relations to topography, soils and settlement; setting forth their local distribution, variations and condition; the depletion due to intensive culling and grazing and the responses of the trees in form and growth to slope, aspect and soil characters. Laboratory analyses have been made of different soil types which support the native trees and efforts will be made to correlate soil depth and quality with form and rate of growth of the trees. The report includes data on age classes and stand densities in that region.
