If you are a woodland owner, taking steps to protect your woods plays a key role in maintaining New England’s forested heritage. The New England Forestry Foundation’s Pooled Timber Income Fund (PTIF) offers a new and unique way to ensure that protection while providing benefits to you and your family.
PTIF participants donate their land to NEFF, and the timber on that land is contributed to a pooled income fund. In turn, donors receive an even stream of lifetime income and tax benefits. All donated land receives permanent protection and is managed to NEFF’s Exemplary Forestry standards. This approach to sustainable forest management balances income generation with the long-term health of forests and the many benefits healthy forests provide, from wildlife habitat to clean air and water.
NEFF staff is happy to answer questions and talk through your options for planned giving and land management. For more information, contact Conservation Project Manager Sophie Anthony at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-952-6856 x122. The following FAQs also provide additional details.
