La forêt pour toujours

Forest management: Estate planning and solutions

If you have devoted a big part of your life to creating a woodlot or managed forest, you want to be sure that your legacy lives on. You can find out more about protecting forests at meeting on Wednesday, March 28 from 6:30 to 9:30pm at the Curran Community Centre, at 819 Cartier Street.

Marc Simard will be leading the meeting. He is the major partner of Simard and Associates, a firm of lawyers who specialize in helping people with their wills and estates. He is a member of Boisés Est.

Estate planning is a subject that concerns many Boisés Est members. As forest or wood lot owners grow older, their physical abilities may lessen, and the monetary investment in the family forest approaches its maximum.

The preparation of a will is an important step to manage an inheritance, when it involves a forest or woodlot, to ensure its future. It specifies what your wishes are just like a forest stewardship plan will help manage our forests.

Based on Simard’s many years of experience, he will speak about the proper way to prepare a will, and the disastrous consequences of badly-prepared wills. He will also provide essential tools to help owners protect their investment.

Série : Gestion de la forêt

Objectif :        Aider les propriétaires à protéger dans le temps leur investissement (financier et autre) dans leur boisé en se dotant d’un bon testament.

Quand :           Mercredi 28 mars 2018 – 18h30 à 21h30

 :                 Forum communautaire – 819, rue Cartier – Curran ON

Animation :    Marc Simard, partenaire principal de Simard et Associés, bureau d’avocats de pratique générale qui traite en particulier de testaments et de successions. Il est membre de Boisés Est.

La succession est un sujet de préoccupation pour de nombreux membres de Boisés Est. Il se trouve en effet qu’avec l’âge, les capacités physiques diminuent, tout comme les perspectives d’avenir, alors même que le capital financier et humain investi dans le boisé familial approche son maximum.

Qu’on envisage une vente ou une succession, on s’inquiète de la manière de protéger le boisé  des différentes menaces qui pèsent sur toute forêt existante dans notre région : coupe à blanc, écrémage, vandalisme ou simple négligence.

La préparation d’un testament représente une étape essentielle dans le processus de succession, ne serait-ce que parce qu’il nous oblige à définir un plan de succession adapté à nos objectifs, un peu comme le plan d’intendance nous aide à gérer notre boisé.

Se basant sur ses années d’expérience, Me Simard parlera en particulier des embûches à éviter pour se doter d’un testament solide, et des conséquences parfois désastreuses de successions mal préparées. Il abordera également les outils disponibles aux propriétaires pour protéger leur patrimoine forestier à plus long terme (fiducies, dons, etc.).
