Forest Use

Our Forestry attorneys see both the forest and the trees.  We have experience representing purchasers and sellers in the acquisition, divestiture, taxation and financing of timber tracks.  Our experience also includes post- acquisition legal services such as succession planning, cutting rights, leasing, boundary line disputes, ownership interest rights, and appraisals.

We regularly represent owners, buyers, hunting clubs, forest products companies, investors, insurance companies, banks, trust funds, controlled burn managers, timber managers, foresters, timber brokers, timber haulers, timber harvesters and timber consultants.  We are also known for our insurance defense work in this industry.
