    I guess this remark might be taken as a little bit snide, but …. I was amused by the reference to the desirability of the woodlots in the area of this settlement — I didn’t think there were more than a dozen trees in the whole state of Iowa! ;o)

      I enjoy a good chuckle, too, lougender. I think you got Iowa confused with Nebraska. : ) I live about an hour from Delhi, Iowa and there are plenty of trees, especially along the river and creeks. Come to Iowa in October and see some beautiful leaves!

      lougender have you even been to Iowa? Yes, your remark was snide.
      While Iowa doesn’t have as many trees as states to the east it is not all flat and treeless like many believe. Yes, most of the trees in the central to western part of the state are found along rivers, but the eastern part of the state does have many wooded areas.
      Iowa does have some of the most desirable farm ground in the country. It is the number one producer of corn, and either first of second in producing the most soybeans. If there were trees covering the whole state then who would put food on your table? 🙂
