Join Us at the 2012 National Conference of Private Forest Landowners Tomorrow

I'm part of a panel discussion tomorrow at the 2012 National Conference of Private Forest Landowners, organized by the Forest Landowners Association. The panel will discuss the important legal issues facing the private forest landowner today. Others on the panel are Scott Jones, CEO of the Forest Landowners Association, and Stephen Schrock, a partner at Morris, Manning & Martin who specializes in transactional law related to timberlands. We hope to field more questions than just lecture. We've even promised not to bring powerpoints to keep things less stuffy!

My part in the panel discussion will focus on the litigation that forest landowners need to know about. We'll talk about the U.S. Supreme Court's recent Sackett v. EPA decision, as well as the forest roads permitting controversy, including the potential effects of EPA's recent regulatory notice and the Solicitor General's recent brief to the U.S. Supreme Court.

If you'll be in the Jacksonville area, it's not too late to register. Hope to see you there!
