Conserve Your Land

A Conservation Easement is a voluntary land agreement between a landowner and a Land Trust that permanently restricts certain aspects of land use in order to protect the conservation values of the property. When a landowner places a Conservation Easement on their land, they maintain ownership and use of the property and can sell it or pass it on to heirs.

The land is subject to certain restrictions agreed upon by the landowner and the Land Trust. For example, a landowner might agree to limit development on his or her property to one residence of a particular size. Each Conservation Easement is tailored to be specific to the property it is designed to protect and the needs of the landowner.
