Legal Considerations for Woodland Owners-Virtual DAY in the WOODS event on August 14th

Originally our A DAY in the WOODS program for August was  designed to explore two broad topics: Mapping and GPS for woodland owners, as well as, Legal Considerations. Since COVID-19 has thrown a monkey wrench into our plans we’ve decided to just cover the Legal Considerations portion of that program on August 14.  We’ll save the Mapping and GPS portion of the program a later date (probably October 9).  Please stay tuned to this site for regular updates.

We are pleased to announce that James S. Savage, Esq. and Mark Rickey, Service Forester, ODNR-Division of Forestry will begin the program with a  discussion on Timber Theft and Trespass in Ohio.  They will share their recent experiences with timber theft in southeastern Ohio and discuss ways that you can protect your woodlands from timber theft/trespass.

Our second presentation features Peggy Kirk Hall, Associate Professor, Agricultural & Resource Law, Ohio State University Extension, and Amy Milam, Director of Legal Education, Ohio Farm Bureau Federation.  Peggy and Amy will discuss Ohio Fence Line Law, recreational user laws and other issues facing Ohio woodland owners.
