For many of our clients, timberland is a large asset. While many investors include real estate as part of their portfolio, owning forestland is very different from owning a shopping center or shares in a real estate investment trust. We know forestry.

We understand timber markets, silvicultural treatments, management strategies, and the players in timber markets. Without thoughtful planning and knowledgeable advisors, forest landowners could lose thousands of dollars due to poor timing, an unexpected death, a sudden financial emergency, or bad marketing decisions. They could also pay thousands, or even millions, of dollars in unnecessary taxes.

We have represented numerous forest landowners in creating and implementing business succession and estate plans, real estate and timber transactions, a wide variety of litigation. 

Jason is a N.C. Registered Forester, a Certified Forester, and a member of the Society of American Foresters, the Association of Consulting Foresters, and the N.C. Forestry Association. He has presented at numerous state, regional and national conferences on business and estate planning.
