PFI members are Bird Friendly
By Luke Gran
Need another great reason to have your friend join PFI? – birds dig us.
PFI Member Jack “Tree hugger/Tree Cutter” Knight is first Iowa woodland owner in the state to have land certified “Bird-Friendly” by the Forest Stewardship Council.
Way to Go Jack!
Interested readers with land in the state of Iowa should contact their DNR district Forester. http://www.iowadnr.gov/forestry/district.html
There may be government cost-share programs to get some financial assistance, in some cases as much as 50-80%.
Farmers can also apply for assistance to put in windbreaks, shelterbelts, and stream buffers.
