Many of us take family vacation in August. Some of us go to the beach while others prefer time in our woods. As you walk in your woods with your family, consider what do you love about your woods? Maybe it is a special grove of trees, the stream, a good bird watching/listening spot, or a tranquil spot. As you think of that special place, what do you want it to look like when your children or grandchildren inherit the land? A forester can help you write a forest management plan that meets your management goals and ensures your forest remains healthy.

As the owner of a woodland, you are likely familiar with the recreational value of forests, from hiking, to hunting and fishing, to just admiring Fall colors.  State and national public lands offer people a chance to get outside and experience the benefits and beauty of nature – and by opening your woodland to recreation, you can as well.

Empowering Maine’s women woodland owners to steward our forestlands
Article

As a forest landowner, you must keep good records in order to take maximum advantage of the special tax treatments available for timber. At a minimum, you should keep a tree farm journal that lists all activities, costs, and incomes from the forest (see example below). You also should have accounts for land, timber, and other capital assets. When setting up timber basis accounts, it is a good idea to use Form T Forest Activities Schedule as a guide. It may be required when claiming depletion of the timber basis after a timber sale or loss.

I hope most of you don’t need to read this but we need to talk about what to do if you had fire on your property in 2015.  Normally, taxpayers are only able to recover their investment in timber at the time of a harvest.  This is done through the use of depletion.  However, if you have a loss on your property, you can also reclaim some of that investment in the form of a casualty loss deduction.
