If you own and care for woodland, the fate of your land is probably important to you.  You hope that future generations will benefit from your efforts. But hope is not a plan. Preserving your legacy requires planning, and that involves more than just having a will or an estate plan.

This workshop is a mix of presentation and practical exercises that will give you the knowledge and tools to start succession planning. The fee includes morning coffee and lunch; plus one copy per family of Ties to the Land succession planning workbook and planning binder with worksheets.
