Amana Foresters and Lumberjacks in Iowa

Our two Foresters, Larry Gnewikow and Tim Krauss.

Who We Are

Our current staff consists of a graduate forester and a graduate conservationist intended to manage and control all aspects of land management from burning our prairies to planting our trees to harvesting with the least amount of impact.

Keeping our forest healthy and diverse while maximizing productivity provides the most benefit to the company, stockholders, and employees of the Amana Society, Inc.

We don’t harvest timber to supply specific products for our customer, instead, we find customers that need the products we produce from harvesting practices that meet our forest management goals.   – Larry Gnewikow
