New Extension Forestry Specialist Excited to Work with Iowans

Billy Beck committed to showing all Iowans the value of the forest

AMES, Iowa – Forests and woodlands may not be among the first things that come to mind when people think about what grows in Iowa. 

But according to Billy Beck, newly-named assistant professor and extension forestry specialist at Iowa State University, forests hold more value and potential than Iowans often realize. 

“Forests are important for many reasons, including water quality improvement, wildlife, timber and aesthetics, and we need to be promoting them more,” Beck said.
