Drought Sales of Timber

During periods of drought some farmers view timber sales as a way to improve their cash flow. Selling timber during periods of economic distress is a good way to generate income, but it is important to realize that such sales may also result in a tax liability. The amount of liability depends on the sales volume, the basis or cost of the timber sold, and the seller’s other taxable income as a farmer.

Drought Tolerant Trees for the Southeast

You can be sure that all plants need water. However, some plants are able to resist drought better than others. The means by which plants cope with drought varies considerably and impacts how we should use these plants in the landscape. Some plant are "drought tolerant" simply due to an extensive root system, but will suffer if planted where the roots are restricted in the landscape or reduced during transplanting. Other plants are able to conserve water due to limited leaf areas, have leaves that prevent water loss, or can tolerate extreme dehydration.
