LITTLE ROCK – The issues surrounding inheritance can be difficult to discuss with
family, but a Nov. 16 workshop will help provide the communication skills needed to
start the process to keep forest, agricultural or recreational lands within the family
The “Landowner Legacy” workshop is being led by Ginny and Allen Nipper, a husband-wife
team who own forestland in Arkansas and Louisiana and are past Arkansas Tree Farmers
of the Year.
The workshop runs from 10 a.m-2 p.m. at the Cooperative Extension Service state headquarters,
2301 S. University Avenue. Registration opens at 9:30 a.m. Registration fee is $25
and includes lunch. To register call 501-374-2441 or online at https://tinyurl.com/landownerlegacy.
“They know, firsthand, the needs surrounding succession and inheritance,” said Tamara
Walkingstick, associate director of the Arkansas Forest Resources Center and an extension
forester. “The Nippers created this program based upon their own personal experience
with passing their legacy to their children. What became clear to them was that they
needed better communication.”
“The great thing about their program is that is very hands-on; people will learn communication
skills necessary to start what we call ‘The Conversation’ about passing the land on
to the next generation,” Walkingstick said, adding that this is a program the Nippers
have presented across the country.
The conference is being presented in partnership by the Arkansas Tree Farm Program,
Arkansas Forestry Association Education Foundation and the University of Arkansas
System Division of Agriculture through its Cooperative Extension Service.
For more information about forestry, contact your county extension office, http://uaex.uada.edu/counties or visit www.uaex.uada.edu.
