Stop Trespassing: Suggestions from the Chief

Matt Weathers is the Law Enforcement Section Chief at the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Trespassing is an ever-present concern for forest landowners. Trespassers can cause problems from annoyance to outright damage or theft. We asked Chief Weathers to speak with us about the always-timely topic of deterring trespassers--safely and legally--on private forest lands.

Delaying a Timber Sale Can Ease the Tax Burden for Heirs

Dr. Patrick Hiesl is Assistant Professor of Forest Operations at Clemson University. He has research and extension projects with industrial and private forest owners surrounding timber harvesting activities and its impacts on taxes, productivity, cost, and water quality. We asked Dr. Hiesl to talk to us about the option of delaying final harvests of mature timber to pass on the benefit of a stepped-up timber basis to the next generation of forest owners. In some cases, simply delaying the sale can be "the same as receiving approximately 30 percent more for the timber."

Updated Predictions for Global Timber Markets in 2020

Pete Stewart is the Founder, President, and CEO of Forest2Market, an organization that "provides market price data, supply chain expertise and other decision support services to participants in the forest, wood and paper products, recovered fiber and bioenergy industries." Back in January, we read Pete's article "10 Predictions for Global Forest Markets." Since then, the COVID-19 coronavirus and resulting stock market changes made us wonder: What, if anything, would Pete change about his predictions for 2020 considering the evens that unfolded after his article?
