In the United States a tree farm can be a great business to start because the government offers so many tax breaks for tree farm owners. A couple filing jointly can deduct about $10,000 a year for the expenses they have as a result of planting trees. Over the next eight years tree farmers can deduct even more of the planting costs.
There are many other tax breaks offered to tree farmers. This encourages more people to start farms, which in general are good for everyone. However, there is also a lot of paperwork to be filled out, and you need to make sure you understand all the guidelines, of which there are many, so you can get as many benefits and breaks as possible and hopefully make a profit in your business.
