Can you direct me where I can find this information? I can't figure it out... Thank you!
Who owns forest trees when the land on which they are growing is so0ld?
The new owner, the old owner, the public, the courts?
I believe it's the New owner but can't find this out. Can you please tell me where I can find this info?
They are attaced to the land deed, UNLESS it specifies otherwise. The same applies to mineral rights below the surface.
I need to caveat this: some states allow mineral rights to be severed from surface deeds, Mississippi, for instance. In those states it is very common for the deeds to be surface deeds, and someone else owns subsurface rights.
