Types of Easements and Land Protection

Conservation Easements

A conservation is a legal agreement that is generally granted, but is occasionally sold, to a unit of government or a qualified non-profit conservation organization, such as the Trust. The landowner retains ownership of the land, and the right to control access to it.

Agricultural Easements

An agricultural easement is another form of conservation easement focusing on agricultural property.

Property Ownership

For a number of properties, actual ownserp of the land has been donated to the trust, ensuring its protection.
