Forest Taxation and Estate Planning

Photo by


The Forest Service Forest Taxation and Estate Planning program provides national leadership on forest tax policy, tax education, and estate planning -- information that is important to support private forest stewardship and conservation.

We track the latest tax law changes, deliver estate planning information, and provide forest tax policy assessment through our websites, publications, presentations, workshops, and webinars. We work in collaboration with state forestry agencies, cooperative extension services, and forest landowner associations.

This tax planning information assistance helps private landowners and rural communities to manage forested lands sustainably. It benefits forest landowners, forestry consultants, accountants, lawyers, and state agency forest land managers.
