Timber and Taxes

The Environmental Tax Policy Institute's Director, Janet Milne, has prepared a report for the Friends of the Earth on how tax provisions in three New England states—Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont—affect forestlands and the timber products industry. Focusing on provisions targeted specifically to forestlands and the timber industry, the report reviews the ways in which these three states have used their tax codes to try to influence decisions about the choice of forest management practices, the choice of practices in the timber products industry and, ultimately, the choice about whether to maintain the land as forestland.
