The article offers business and tax advice for new land owners seeking to link forestry with lifestyle benefits. In order to be eligible for tax deductions on a forestry property, activities should be considered as a business. Examples of lifestyle possibilities with a forest element include mountain biking over forest access roads and tracks, four wheel driving competitions, fishing, hunting, or punga growing. Through attentive planning, intelligent thought, and the readiness to demonstrate hands on labor, one could attain a forestry block with business deductions combined with lifestyle.
