    Trees are planted for many reasons, including soil and water conservation, wildlife habitat, nut and timber production. Altruism motivates many landowners to plant trees. There are, however, those who plant with the expectation of increasing their family's wealth. In this publication I discuss the financial and tax aspects of tree planting projects. The focus is on trees planted for timber production, although other purposes are mentioned to distinguish their treatment with the tax treatment of timber. Internal Revenue Code and associated regulations are cited as authorities for use by tax professionals.
