A Consulting Forester's Perspective on Carbon-Offset Market

Mark Dale is the founder of Forest Pro LLC, which specializes in all aspects of timberland management, appraisals, and sales in South Mississippi. He has been helping many of his forest owner clients navigate the carbon-offset market, which is a newly emerged and booming business of firms paying forest owners not to harvest their trees -- they lease the trees as carbon sponges in order to reduce carbon in the atmosphere. Mark will share his expertise on the topic and details about what advantages or disadvantages there might be to forest owners if they partake in the new trend.

Protecting the Right to Practice Forestry

Jason Callahan serves as the Director of Government Relations for the Washington Forest Protection Association (WFPA). The WFPA played a key role in getting a major bill passed in the State of Washington, HB101, which protects owners of working forest land from nuisance lawsuits. The bill improves a previously signed bill, the 2009 Right to Farm Act, which sought to protect forest owners but failed to include the appropriate language to actually do so. Jason will share insight into why the new bill was needed and why it's critical for forest owners to watch out for new federal legislation that may impact property rights.

New Field Test for CWD on Horizon

Ben Westfall is a Deer Outreach Specialist for the National Deer Association, the leading conservation organization dedicated to conserving North America's favorite game animal. A serious threat to deer is Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), which is fatal in most deer species and has no vaccine or known cure. The number on deer herds affected by CWD is increasing each year, but thankfully science is getting closer to a field test for CWD that can be utilized on live deer. The disease has not yet been found in deer in Alabama. Ben will provide an update on this significant issue and where we are on the improved testing measures.

Forest Management Expenses 101: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You

Orman R. Wilson, CPA serves as a Tax Manager for JamisonMoneyFarmer PC. Landowners incur many expenses when it comes to taking care of their property: traveling to and from the land, chainsaws, herbicides to maintain roads, boundary line paint, equipment such as tractors, and pickup trucks are just a few. It's often difficult to know which expenses can be deducted from income taxes. As a certified tax expert, Orman has the must-know details about forest management expenses that every forest land owner should know.
