A conservation easement can help protect your land, wildlife habitat, scenic areas, or historic buildings. It’s an alternative to selling the land for development.
A conservation easement is a legal agreement ensuring your property will be managed according to your wishes. With an easement, you retain ownership of the land, and you may qualify for tax benefits.
Conservation easements can be customized to meet a landowner’s needs, whether you own 5 acres or 3,000 acres.
