MARSHALL – Timber producers can learn about various programs available to and tax tips for rural landowners with timber interests during an event Jan. 19 in Marshall.
The event will be at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Harrison County, 102 W. Houston St. from 6-8 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public. It will be hosted by the Harrison, Panola and Gregg Forest and Landowners Association in cooperation with AgriLife Extension offices in Harrison, Panola and Gregg counties, and the Texas A&M Forest Service.
Mac Abney of A&G LLP Certified Public Accountants, Marshall, will discuss tax implications affecting timber producers and landowners.
Ross Brown, natural resource manager, U.S. Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service, Longview, will discuss USDA programs that could apply to timber producers and landowners.
Justin Kendall, Texas A&M Forest Service forester, Marshall, will discuss agency programs available to landowners and timber producers.
“A lot of people in the area don’t know what AgriLife Extension, the USDA and Forest Service can provide to help them, whether it’s answering a question or directing them to available resources,” Garrett said. “This information is valuable to producers and landowners who may not know about tax options for timber or a program to thin trees.”
Organizers ask that attendees RSVP by Jan. 12 at 903-935-8413.
