Ties to the Land

Millions of acres of family-owned forest land will change hands in the United States within the next decade. Ties to the Land, a collaborative initiative in conjunction with the University of California based at Oregon State University, was formed to assist woodland owners pass on their legacy through a succession plan.

The Ties to the Land succession planning program emphasizes communication among families to determine the best plan for their property and the best method of achieving it-an often difficult task when family members have different visions.

Successful succession is a collaborative effort between the family, legal and financial advisors, and natural resource professionals in order to help maintain the land's integrity. For natural resource professionals looking for more information about engaging landowners in discussions about their property, please visit http://www.engaginglandowners.org/.

For more information about Ties to the Land and how you can bring the workshop to your area to educate local landowners, please visit http://tiestotheland.org.

Stay tuned to this blog and the Forest Research and Outreach website for details about this project in California.
