Hand Arendall's Timber Practice Group is composed of lawyers skilled in dealing with timber, timber products, timberland and timberland owners. These lawyers provide advice to numerous timberland owners concerning their specialized estate planning needs, which oftentimes includes drafting family limited partnerships and limited liability companies. They also provide advice to such owners with regard to environmental, wetland, and streamside matters.
A number of Hand Arendall's clients operate tree farms, sawmills, veneer mills and related businesses. The Timber Practice Group lawyers are therefore experienced in handling the business and regulatory matters that arise in those contexts, including federal and state tax questions regarding timber sales, cutting contracts and section 631(b) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The Timber Practice Group lawyers also work closely with numerous timber-owning families regarding family succession issues and opportunities, both in preserving the timberland for future generations and management and fairly distributing it in a tax effective manner among the members of the younger generations.
For more information regarding the Timber Practice Group, contact Practice Group Chairman Stephen G. Crawford or any of the other lawyers in the Practice Group.
