Managing Legal Risk for Alternative Uses of Forestland



Picture2

 

These  materials were compiled in collaboration with the University of Arkansas  Cooperative Extension Service, the LSU AgCenter and with support from the  Southern Risk Management Education Center.

The  purpose of this workshop series was to educate forest landowners, loggers, and  foresters in Arkansas and Louisiana about alternative uses to their property  such as agritourism and hunting. As with any new use of property, there will  be challenges and risks that will arise and dealing with these risks before  they become a problem is critical for long-term viability.

The materials for the workshops has been provided  below. The materials include recorded  workshop sessions as well as the written supplementary materials that were  provided to each participant. For  questions about the materials presented, please contact Rusty Rumley by phone  at (479) 575-2636 or by email at [email protected].
