Family Forestland Short-course:
Focusing on Land Transfer to Generation “NEXT”
You value your forest and/or farmland for multiple reasons. Are you prepared to pass the environmental and heirloom values rooted in your forest to the next generation? Without breaking it up?
The cost of not planning is “priceless” and future tax burdens may put your land’s ownership in jeopardy. If you don’t plan, the State will plan for you. By researching and choosing what you want ahead of time, you can ensure your wishes are met and minimize the cost of professional advisors! Please join us for a hands-on workshop with free legal guidance from professionals experienced in intergenerational land transfer and landowner testimonials of estate planning steps & strategies they have used. Land may be your biggest asset. Make sure your actions support the family’s values.
Speakers include legal and financial experts experienced in estate planning as well as natural resource professionals who work with landowners to conserve land and plan the future.
