Farm Bill 2018: Programs of Interest to Forest Landowners

— Written By Kristin Wing

The 2018 Farm Bill, also known as the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, modifies and reauthorizes several agricultural and natural resource assistance programs for the next five years. This bill offers many resources for landowners, but it can be quite extensive, so our staff have pulled together a publication to help you navigate it.

This publication breaks down the major forestry programs in the bill, discusses conservation and energy programs that directly and indirectly relate to forestry, and also notes the repealed programs.

For more information on these programs, visit the publication here.
