Conservation Easements

When you donate a conservation easement to a land trust, you agree to give up some of the rights associated with the land. For example, you might give up the right to build additional structures, while retaining the right to harvest trees or grow crops. Future owners also will be bound by the easement’s terms. The land trust is responsible for making sure the easement’s terms are followed on a long-term basis. Want to learn more about the process of conserving land?
