County Extension Forester, Andy Fast will introduce the Timber Basis Decision Model with a brief outdoor activity.

 


Our Instructors:
Dr. Tamara Cushing is a tax expert from Oregon State University where she serves as the Starker Chair of Private and Family Forestry and assistant professor in the Department of Forest Engineering, Resources, and Management. Her research focuses on financial decision-making and tax impacts on private forest landowners. In addition to teaching, she has Extension responsibilities related to educating forest landowners and professionals about the business side of forestry including economics, policy, and management. Prior to going to Oregon State in 2014, Cushing was a faculty member at Clemson University and the University of Kentucky. She holds a doctorate in forest finance from the University of Georgia, a master's in forest economics and a Master of Taxation from Mississippi State University, and an undergraduate degree in forestry from the University of Florida.

 


Andy Fast is the Belknap and Strafford county forester with the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension's Natural Resources Team. He has experience in a range of land management related positions in the northeast and western United States with the U.S. Forest Service, Marin Conservation Corps, and the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests. His primary responsibility for UNH Cooperative Extension is to provide technical assistance and outreach education to landowners, natural resources professionals, and municipalities in forestry, wildlife, and conservation. Andy is interested in the economics of private land management and developed the Timber Basis Decision Model with Dr. Cushing and UNH’s Dr. Mark Ducey to help landowners and foresters make good financial decision.
