When Is the Right Time to Plan?

Now is the best time to start planning for the land you love!

Many woodland owners put off planning for the future of their land. In the midst of daily life, it’s easy to forget about or put off making decisions that aren’t urgent—whether they affect an upcoming timber harvest or your estate plan for the land’s management after your death.

It can also be unsettling and uncomfortable to think about what will happen to your land after you’re gone, or to discuss that with your family.

But waiting until it’s too late can have devastating consequences for your family and your woods. Without a clearly defined plan, families can fall into conflict and animosity. If something unforeseen happens before you have a chance to plan, grief or stress will only complicate the planning and decision-making that managing your land requires. It’s best to formulate your vision now, while you can.
