Title: Gifting of timberland as an estate planning tool

Author: Siegel, William C.;

Date: 2004

Source: National Woods, Volume 27(3): 22-24

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Estate planning and associated tax considerations frequently focus on the transfer of property at death. Lifetime gifts, however, are also a valuable planning tool. The "ability to afford the gift" should be the first consideration in a giving program. Timberland and other property that someday might be needed should not be given away.
