Branan: NCTTF Grant Announcement

ARE Extension Assistant Professor Andrew Branan has been awarded a grant from the NC Tobacco Trust Fund to create a workbook about land management and succession.

“The Heir’s Guide to Inherited Farm and Forest Land Interests” is a proposed guide for inheritors of family interests in farm and forest land. The workbook will feature narratives on topics such as managing and resolving co-tenancy land ownership, trusteeship of landowning trusts, LLC membership, and land management topics including forestry, present use valuation, appraisals and surveys, leasehold arrangements with farm operators, and land and water conservation programs. The workbook will include worksheets and legal agreement templates, drawn from the principal author’s former law practice library.
