Topics to be covered include:

  • Tools and legal approaches to maintain and transfer family forestland and farmland
  • Difference between treating heirs "equally" and treating them "fairly"
  • Retention of land intact from one generation to the next
  • The element of "control" in the family farm
  • Lifetime transfers of land
  • Business structure and choice of entity for land ownership
  • Multi-generational involvement of the estate planner and the estate planner's role
