Win in Tennessee Court Stops Trespassing Game Wardens -- Now What?

Robert Frommer is a senior attorney at the Institute for Justice, where he litigates cutting-edge constitutional cases to defend economic liberty, free speech, and private property rights. Robert recently litigated Rainwaters v. Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, a case challenging Tennessee game wardens' authority to conduct warrantless surveillance on private land. He, the Institute for Justice, and the two landowners scored a major victory in that case, and Robert joins us to talk about what victory in the case means for not only landowners in Tennessee but beyond and where things stand today.

Likely Impact of Inflation on Forest Management Costs

Richard Hall serves as president of Buckhead Resources, Inc., a natural resource management and advisory firm based in Atlanta, Georgia. He also serves as an affiliate faculty member and instructor of various forest finance and pre-law courses at Auburn University's College of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences. It's no secret that inflation is impacting many aspects of the economy, and that includes forestry. With more than 20 years of experience in natural resource finance and investments, Richard joins us to discuss the impact inflation is having on forest management activities -- from tree planting and beyond -- and what private forest owners may want to consider based on current and projected inflation rates.

Now is the Time to Build a Pond

Norman Latona is the owner and president of Southeastern Pond Management, a leader in pond and lake management services. The last presidential administration reduced regulations surrounding the construction of ponds, making now a  great time for new pond construction before the current administration potentially imposes new or expanded regulations. Norman will walk us through the steps typically required in new pond construction and the regulations landowners should expect when doing so.

Forever Wild Land to Begin Making Payments to Counties in Lieu of Taxes

Rep. Ben Robbins is a member of the Alabama House of Representatives, representing district 33 (which includes parts of Coosa, Talladega, and Clay Counties). In the last legislative session, he had introduced House Bill 463, which proposed a local constitutional amendment requiring the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to market carbon credits for a portion of the Forever Wild Land Trust property located in Coosa County and provide any income from those credits to the general fund of Coosa County. Though this bill was carried over into the Senate, it did not pass. Rep. Robbins joins us to discuss where he is with this proposal today and why he feels it is needed in Coosa County.
