Last week I, along with fellow LANDTHINK Contributors Jonathan Goode and Randall Upchurch had the opportunity to attend a RLI course at Mt. Cheaha State Park in Delta, Alabama called “Timberland: Identifying and Evaluating Timberland as an Investment”. Rick Taylor, a forester and broker from Mississippi wrote and taught the course. There were many agents in attendance and some had come from as far away as New Mexico and the Midwest States to complete the course.
The scope of the course was to help us understand forest investment through instruction in basic forestry principals and financial principals. For anyone who has not taken this course, I highly recommend it if your business involves marketing timberland. Rick has a great understanding of southern timberlands, and is very willing to share his knowledge and experience with class participants.
The course lasted two days, and there were multiple references to LANDTHINK throughout both days. Everyone there knew Jonathan Goode was a contributor and complemented him on his work. I think all that notoriety was for Jonathan’s article on “The P Factor in Rural Land”… it could not have anything to do with his informative and useful articles there… I digress. I even heard agents tell of using information from LANDTHINK to market their services and their properties. Rick made multiple verbal references to LANDTHINK during the course, and encouraged the brokers there to use the site. What struck me most was finding a LANDTHINK article referenced in the course materials. So, LANDTHINK is making an impact in the world of land marketing. It seems this blogging thing is even catching on with late adopters these days.
