Protecting the natural character and resources of a property

An easement is a legally binding agreement between landowner and a land trust.

A conservation easement protects the natural character and resources on a property and provides an array of benefits to landowners, future generations and the community. Some easement benefits may include tax incentives, continued opportunities for traditional rural uses, and the peace of mind that treasured lands will be protected for generations to come. Benefits to the public also include scenic road and water frontage, reduction in infrastructure needs, and improved air and water quality.
