Dr. David Mercker
Facing Timber Casualty Losses?
Dr. David Mercker has
served as an extension forester for 21 years with the
Tennessee Extension. He recently developed a set of videos called
"Back Porch Forestry" that talk viewers through forestry topics in a casual
and approachable way. His episode on taxes and timber casualty loss caught
our attention, especially given the number and severity of storms this year.
We asked him to walk us through what landowners should know about casualty
losses as they prepare for tax season.

"Open fields": Your Property May Not Be
Windham is an attorney at the
Institute for Justice, and is
involved in a case in Tennessee that questions the assumption of privacy on
your own land that many landowners take for granted. At the heart of the
case are some landowners who found game cameras owned by the Tennessee Fish
and Wildlife Service on their private property. In one case, removing the
unmarked camera resulted in agents at the landowner's door. We asked
Jonathan to tell us about the obscure policy that makes this legal, and the
Institute for Justice's challenge.
