When: Saturday April 30th, 8:15am – 5:00pm
Where: Lake Morey Inn, Fairlee, Vermont
Anyone who owns woodlands, and wants them to be well-managed into the future, faces a challenging question: how can owners and managers of forests establish a legacy for Vermont’s woodlands so they remain part of our landscape for years to come?
A daylong Landowner Summit on April 30 in Fairlee is designed to help provide an answer to this question.
The day will be packed with useful information for both landowners and professionals who work with landowners to learn about ways to plan ahead for the long-term viability of forests in Vermont. The day will include:
- A panel of landowners discussing long-term planning they have done to prepare for transfer of land from one generation to the next.
- Sessions to help landowners and resource professionals understand options for long-term planning such as talking to children about long-term forest ownership, forming limited liability corporations, exploring easements, cooperative forestland ownership, and much more. Estate planning lawyers, financial planners and other experts will help lead the workshops.
- Information for landowners that don’t have heirs and are wondering what to do, as well as information for landowners whose children are not interested in the family property.
$30 per person (there is some scholarship money available for families 3 or more to attend together – we are hoping to have multiple generations attend together)
