The Edward F. Travis Company, Inc. has extensive experience with valuing, managing and advising clients who own land subject to long term timber leases.
Understanding the cash flows from the lease and the reversion interest is critical when dealing with timber leases. As leases approach the end of their term, and legal wrangling is a common occurrence. As experienced timber lease managers, during the last 5 years of the lease, we urge our clients to do some serious coordinating with the tenant to know what the stand conditions will be (as stipulated in the lease) when the lease expires. What to do when it comes back is important from a planning and management standpoint.
