Experts to meet with Angelina Co. landowners for land seminar

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Landowners in Angelina County must always consider several state and federal rules before they do any kind of work.

According to Agrilife Extension Agent Cary Sims, learning about all the rules can be stressful. Sims said he hopes an upcoming program will hep out landowners.

For landowners interested in continuing stress-reducing walks on their land, the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will be presenting a seminar entitled "Land, Water & Wealth: A Legal Symposium for East Texas Agriculture" next month on Friday, May 20 at the Angelina County office.

Addressing these issues are two outstanding attorneys, Jim Bradbury and Dr. Tiffany Lashmet. Featured guests speakers include State Senator Robert Nichols and State Representative Trent Ashby.

This seminar will be an all-day program at the Angelina County Extension office. Valuable information on water law, eminent domain, estate planning, and negotiating agricultural leases are to be covered. Cost is $30 per person or $50 per couple. Call 936.634.6414 ext. 100 by May 13 to reserve a seat.

Sponsors of the event include the USDA, First Bank &Trust East Texas, The Advanced Financial Group, Heritage Land Bank, and AgriLife Extension.
