Protect Your Land With a Conservation Easement

A conservation easement is a land preservation agreement between a landowner and a governmental or non-profit organization that places permanent development limits on a property. The terms are negotiated between the landowner and the conservation organization, but generally the landowner continues to own, use, and control the land.

An easement can be used to protect family farms, wildlife habitats, water resources, undeveloped land, historic sites and scenic vistas. Furthermore, easement donors are eligible for local, state, and federal tax benefits.
