Understanding What Makes New Hampshire’s Sawmills Viable

There’s been a lot of worry and talk about changes in low-grade markets. But, what is going on with the rest of the forest industry? At Blackfly we will hear from people who work in the lumber industry—our high-grade markets. They will update us on the existing markets, trends, domestic markets, and the importance of international markets and trade policies.

Timber Depletion—A “Value-Added” Service for Foresters

12:00 - 2:00 includes lunch, cost $15.00

Foresters can help clients understand the financial implications of managing forestland. The tax treatment of timber income, specifically opportunities to deplete timber, can result in greater profit for a landowner, and can help justify a forester’s services and fees. We will review the basics of federal timber taxes—determining a taxable gain on timber harvests, establishing a timber basis, and depletion—then introduce a “calculator” that foresters can use to help predict the financial impacts of depleting timber.
