The Federal Estate Tax: A Potential Problem for Private Nonindustrial Forest Owners in the South
Abstract:As land and timber prices continue to escalate due to inflation and real cost increases, the federal estate tax could ultimately change forestland ownership patterns of the southern United States. In some cases, only a fraction of the original tract may be passed to a surviving family member, with the balance sold to pay the estate tax. However, sound management of financial and forest resources could offset this problem. Alternatives to harvesting timber to fund the tax are presented.
