Harold E. Manhart, MD, Montrose, CO and Barneveld, WI – passed away on December 5, 2021.
In 1966 he purchased a dairy farm in western Wisconsin with plans to turn it into a productive conservation tree farm specializing in American Walnut. Over the ensuing 55 years his effort has been rewarded with multiple recognitions, including Conservation Farm of the Year on two occasions. He was a member of the Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association, American Walnut Council and the American Chestnut Foundation.

Memorial services will be held later in the upcoming year (2022) at the farm. Any donations can be made in his name to the Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association.
