People own land for many reasons, from farming as a hobby to ranching or timber production as a business. Whatever the reason, economics is always part of the picture. Learn about the financial aspects of property ownership, including: • Zoning and tax deferrals. • Income possibilities for forested land. • Enterprise possibilities. • Conservation easements and succession. One of nine rural resource guidelines to help people living on rural land assess their land and resources, create goals and develop a stewardship plan. The Land Steward Rural Resource Guideline Series publications can be used individually as standalone resources, together to create a Do-It-Yourself stewardship plan, or as part of the Land Steward Curriculum.
