COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The long-term plan for a privately-owned estate can be as individualized as the property owner.  That includes how the land is managed both now and into the future.  Texas A&M Forest Service can help landowners explore options to develop a plan that is right for you. 

The state agency that works to conserve and protect the natural resources of the state - including assisting landowners in managing their own piece of Texas – will be featured at the Woodland Owners’ Workshop August 14, 2014 in Diboll, Texas.

Agenda items include eminent domain, planning for the future, inheritance and property transfer, and what tools and resources are currently available to property owners for making management decisions.

TFS has a longstanding practice of providing such assistance to landowners.

“One of the best things you can do is plan for your future,” TFS Program Coordinator Shane Harrington said. “One of the worst things you can do is leave it up to chance.”

Harrington advises that it may be easy to put off estate planning until “later”- but cites “it is the most important way you can preserve your wealth and pass it along to those you care about.”


The workshop is free to the public and will be held at the Lottie and Arthur Temple Civic Center in Diboll from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Lunch is included and continuing education credits are available. Please RSVP by Aug. 8 to Shane Harrington at (936) 546-1470 or sharrington@tfs.tamu.edu.
