Most woodland owners realize multiple benefits from owning their forest land. Some people may have a special interest in providing wildlife habitat, conserving soil and water, protecting endangered plants and animals, or other activities not related to the pro- duction of income. Generally in these cases, most income expectations are limited to an increase in market value of the property, that would be realized in the event it is sold.
