QOTD: What tax benefits are available to forest landowners?

Here is the "question of the day". This is an e-mail I received from a local landowner.

Dear Paul,
We have a small tree farm in Vance County.  I am not certain if there are any land use programs available in Vance County. We would have specific interest if you could direct us regarding programs which may allow specific tax advantage.  At this point, we envision the property remaining in forestry for some time. 
Thank you
Chuck and Sylvia Forest

Dear Chuck and Sylvia,

I am more than happy to help! The local Forest Service office is another great resource, so you should contact them as well.
