1. On acceptance of a trust, the trustee shall administer the trust according to the
terms of the trust and according to this trust code, except to the extent the terms
of the trust provide otherwise.
2. The terms of the trust may expand, restrict, eliminate, or otherwise alter the
duties prescribed by this trust code, and the trustee may reasonably rely on those
terms, but nothing in this trust code authorizes a trustee to act in bad faith or
in disregard of the purposes of the trust or the interest of the beneficiaries.
