Ties to the Land: Succession Planning for Landowners Part 1

September 17, 2016

Do you own and care for farm, forest, or ranch land?
If so, you probably have strong feelings about leaving your land in good condition for the future. Succession Planning—the human side of Estate Planning—focuses on ways to maintain family ties to the land from generation to generation, building awareness of key challenges facing family businesses, and motivating families to address those challenges.
