Fuel Wood Pellet Exports and the Forest Industry

Rick Frederick is the Community Relations Manager for the Gulf Region at Enviva, a wood pellet producer with seven plants in the southeastern U.S. Enviva announced plans for a new plant in Sumter County last October. Though some local groups oppose this new market for low quality wood, the wood pellet industry is relatively small compared to the forest industry as a whole. We asked Rick to talk about the wood pellet industry--where it stands now and how the future looks.

Tax Planning Advice for Forest Landowners

Dr. Tamara L. Cushing is the President of the Society of American Foresters and Starker Chair of Private and Family Forestry at  Oregon State University. She is an Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist in Forest Economics, Management and Policy and is one of the top forest taxation experts in the U.S. Most recently, she led the Texas Timber Tax Workshop in Diboll, Texas for forest landowners and professionals who work with forest landowners in matters related to timber taxes. We asked her what forest landowners should keep in mind or share with their CPA as they prepare to file 2019 taxes. For example, although it's too late to make land decisions in time for taxes, you can avoid paying more than your fair share of taxes on timber income if you know what can be deducted from the proceeds of a timber sale.

GIS and GPS: SmartMap Technologies for Landowners

Beau Brodbeck is both an Extension Specialist and an Affiliate Faculty in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University. Beau will be leading one of his popular SmartMap workshops at the 2020 AFOA Annual Meeting to show landowners how to use GIS and GPS apps to collect data they can use on their land. In addition, he'll give an overview Wednesday morning, April 22, of the new mapping and aerial drone technologies that are available and relatively easy to use for the casual user. Keep an eye on the AFOA calendar for upcoming workshop dates.

Trapping as a Forest Management Tool

Mike Sievering, of the Alabama Trappers & Predator Control Association (ATPCA), will talk to landowners about wildlife trapping on Tuesday, April 21 at the AFOA Annual Meeting. If you manage your land for deer, you might be surprised that coyote trapping, which Mike will cover in his session, may be more important than we knew. New research found that coyotes consume deer year-round, including adult deer. We asked him to tell us more about trapping and the trapping educational events that he leads for young people as well as adults.
