Owning land can feel like a heavy responsibility. But it doesn’t have to.
Smart landowners know by instinct that there are more ways to make money from their land than they are taking advantage of, but figuring out how can be difficult.
Google searches can be confusing; asking fellow land owning friends can produce conflicting advice. It begs to ask: Is there any dependable resource for learning how to make money from owning land?
Yes, there is. It’s a person called a Forester.
What’s a Forester?
Foresters are highly educated professionals who understand the ins and outs of land management. Especially when it comes to growing trees, a Forester has insight and experience that you can hardly find on the internet.
But I’ve never cut my trees, and I don’t think I want to.
That’s okay. There are many more ways to make money from owning land. Depending on the type of terrain you own and the species of animals and plants that live there, you could make money from your land a number of different ways.
Foresters know how to get the most out of your land. They could recommend that you charge people for hunting rights, or perhaps refer you to a specific governmental grant for providing a habitat for endangered species on your property.
Foresters provide many ways to make sustainable income from owning land. Only some of them have to do with cutting trees; almost all of them are lucrative.
How do I find a Forester that’s right for me?
