Event Details

Forest landowners and their families are invited to a workshop to learn simple techniques to help you pass land and its legacy on to the next generation through a workshop focused on succession planning. Succession planning involves more than just having a will or an estate plan, as those legal tools will only ensure that your heirs inherit the property, but not that they will want to carry out the vision for it or even want to keep it. Succession planning helps you pass on more than just the land. It also helps you and your family ensure that your values and plans are part of your current land management plans.

The Ties to the Land Workshops are designed to give you a firm understanding of the succession planning process and the tools to get started. At the workshop you will:

  • Learn how to hold an effective family meeting
  • Gain knowledge of legal and other business considerations
  • Learn the steps to succession planning
  • Understand the influence of generation gaps
  • Clarify your values and goals
  • Take home tools to determine your heirs’ interests

Registration is required. The cost is $25 per family. A workbook and DVD along with light refreshments will be provided.
