The NIFA Annual Dinner Meeting will be held at the Church of God in Mt. Carroll.  The featured speaker, IDNR District Forester Steve Felt, will discuss forest soils and selecting the best tree species for planting based on soil types and site characteristics.  


Steve holds a degree in forestry with a minor in soil science from the University of Illinois and has served as district forester for 37 years.  Previously, he was the Henry County soil scientist working with SCS to complete the county’s soil survey.  In addition, he has served as president of the International Walnut Council which promotes cultivation of fine hardwoods, as well as founding member and secretary of the Walnut Council’s Illinois chapter.  The Walnut Council has recognized his outstanding efforts to educate woodland owners.  He was also the state coordinator for the American Chestnut Foundation, and was recently elected chairman of the Illinois Tree Farm Committee.  He travels extensively throughout the state and the country on his own time to promote forest management and the successful propagation of fine hardwood timber.  For recreation, he enjoys planting trees like the 38,000 hardwoods he planted on his property along the Green River in Henry County.
