The Native vegetation of Iowa was predominantly prairie before the coming of the white man. Forest were present only on the broken lands bordering the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and their tributaries. The type of plant cover in Iowa stood in marked contrast to the chiefly forest cover of the states to the north and south and to the prairie-plans vegetation of the states immediately westward. A map of the original forest cover of Iowa begun in 1832 and completed in 1859, show that only 12 percent of the area was covered with trees.
