TEXARKANA, Ark. –
Preventing conflicts over how land passes to the next generation is the goal of the
“Ties to the Land” workshop set for Dec. 6 in Texarkana, Texas.
The workshop is being led by Tammy Cushing of Oregon State University, who holds
a doctorate in forest finance and taxation. The workshop will cover:
Why succession planning is important & the information needed to be obtained
"Parents or property owners are often surprised to discover that their heirs have
different objectives in mind for the land in question,” said Tamara Walkingstick,
associate director of the Arkansas Forest Resources Center and extension forester.
“These often conflict with the objectives of the parents.”
Walkingstick said Cushing encourages communication among the generations to ferret
out potential conflicts.
“Catching these differences early can save a lot of time and a lot of pain,” she said.
The conference is being organized by the University of Arkansas System Division of
Agriculture, the Arkansas Forest Resources Center, Oregon State Forestry and Natural
Resources Extension and the LSU AgCenter.
The conference will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Levi Hall, Texarkana College, 2500
N. Robison Road. The registration fee is $60 per family for up to five family members.
More family members can attend, of course, but they will have to pay an additional
registration fee. Seating is limited to the first 40 registrations. Registration before the event is required. To register, or for other information,
contact Shaun Tanger at 225-578-3282For more information, visit http://tiestotheland.org/about-ties-land.
