As a landowner, it is important to know what your land is worth. You may find yourself asking the questions like,  “how much is my land worth today,” “how much is my land worth per acre,” “how much is timberland worth,” “what is my farmland worth,” “how much is agricultural land worth,” and other such questions. Many factors go in to determining the value of land and seeking out the wisdom of experts is a great place to find the answers to your questions.

Each week, on the Huntin’ Land Podcast, we will bring in various experts to help provide answers to the important questions landowners have. This week, Jonathan Smith, Executive Director at TimberMart-South, gives the latest Timber Market Update for the state of Tennessee.
