Firewood Assistance in NH

/
Last month, UVLT took steps to duplicate the Woodshed’s program and bring similar firewood assistance opportunities to NH. Due to strict exterior firewood quarantine guidelines in the state, the UVLT team headed to Up on the Hill in Charlestown, NH, to begin harvesting trees for the new program, hoping to officially launch and deliver to recipients in Fall 2023 (once harvested wood has dried sufficiently).

Fall is officially here, and with its arrival comes the impending final harvest, and wrap up of our 2022 Food Pantry Garden season. Each year we are grateful for the many volunteers who commit their time, energy, and skill, to help prepare, plant, and harvest food for our neighbors in need.

Trying Times: Conservation Easements and Federal Tax Law 2022

/
Though many land trusts have extensive knowledge of the tax rules and requirements, they cannot provide specific legal and financial advice to landowners nor prepare tax return documents on their behalf. Instead, says McIntyre “It is critical that we provide educational opportunities and support to the advisors who work on behalf of landowners and are accountable for the preparation of these documents. Every landowner’s situation is unique and they must be able to rely on well-informed, competent advisors. We need to help create an environment where that occurs.”
