The Easement Process: Protect What You Love!
The easement process begins with a landowner’s commitment to protecting land. Working closely with a qualified land trust or other conservation organization, a conservation easement is created.
A conservation easement is a legally binding agreement that permanently limits certain types of development on land in order to protect the land’s conservation values, such as agricultural productivity, forests, wildlife habitats, streams, and scenic views.
Landowners continue to own the property and can live on the land, hunt and fish, farm, harvest timber, and otherwise use their land as they always have. They can sell it or pass it to heirs.
Conservation easements offer peace of mind that the land you love will be here for future generations. They can also generate tax benefits.
