About Ties to the Land

A couple decades ago, OSU's Forestry and Natural Resources Extension Program recognized the need for succession planning resources in the small woodland owner community. Like many landowners across the country, small woodland owners were experiencing high rates of ownership turnover and this trend was unnerving to them and local extension agents. Forestry and Natural Resources Extension agents, together with the local landowners, professionals, and the Austin Family Business Center, pooled their resources and passion to develop a facilitated workshop for succession planning.

Today, the Ties to the Land program prides itself on delivering up-to-date succession planning information to a wide variety of landowners. Starting a succession plan is no easy task and Ties to the Land can provide inspiration and motivation for completing your plan.
